The co-owner of my company is a perlmonger, and it behooves me to
learn a little perl, in case he becomes incompacitated or I have
to use rebol to generate perl code (working on that now).
I'm aware that perl 6.0 is meant to be a major revision and
has been "pending" for a long time. It will be interesting
to follow how backward compatible it is to v5.8.0.
Major revisions can be headaches, methinks.
