Why do you say this? Did you read the whole Apocalypses? Anyway 15 days ago

Maybe, it's not that easier to read or write.

Why? What do you need to do in python that you can't do right now? Isn't it
read-write friendly enough?

Perl6 is, currently, a 4 year development effort that no one knows when will
be ended (I even read that it will take another 4 years), maybe, if it takes
so much to develop just the first version, it's really too complicated.
