I'm so tired of hearing how unreadable Perl is. It's specious. "But if so many people think it..." Uh-uh. Instinctive reactions can be both universal and incorrect...and I think that's what this is. At least, among those who have even bothered to look into Perl instead of just repeating FUD. As for the rest, nothing we do to P6 will overcome the default "Perl sucks" reaction from such bigots. Better to make it a powerful language with a compelling functional reason to use it; if we succeed, we can maybe start to win back some mindshare and undo the rep damage caused by the cgi explosion.
