Although I happen to be one of the folks who are reluctant to switch to
Python 3, I have to say that this comparison is entirely unfair. Python 3
exists in the wild. It has been released, and has even had a couple of
updates. Eventually, it will prevail. Resistance is futile, you WILL be
Perl 6, on the other hand, is still fantasyware a decade after its
announcement. It is, for the most part, THE canonical example of the wrong
way to conduct a development effort.
