Wrt to Pm’s timing of perl 5 with Moose: if you actually want to have most of Perl 6’s capabilities in Perl 5 with Moose, you will need to load quite a few MooseX:: classes as well. Which cannot have a positive effect on load time.
Right. But that's not too impressive, as one of the major criticisms of Moose is exactly the startup overhead it introduces. Mainly explained with the compile time of large modules. With Perl 6's compile development, I hope we'll end up in a completely other ballpark, eventually.
