Look towards the kinds of problems being solved by Go and Python in the
parallel (message passing and tight smp)/distributed/scientific computing
As Larry pointed out in his YAPC::NA Q&A, he wanted to make things like PDL
easier and more naturally expressed in the available language features.
Similarly, Damian pointed out in hist keynote how natural it was to express
scientific ideas in Perl 6.
Providing development tools, in particular static-ish analyzers for Perl 6
*and* Perl 5 (among other languages) might also be a rich area to explore.
Time spent on CMS software and replicated tired applications is going to a
waste of time (though not the framework(s) to make creating them easier).
