Perl 6 a complete failure? Wow, must be coming from a clueless Python
zealot. If Perl 6 is a fiasco, so is Python 3. Both are not considered
production ready, and both can be downloaded and used today:

Next release is planned for later this month.

Did Perl 6 take a long time? Sure. But confusing it with Python 2 ->
Python 3 is just plainly stupid. It's a complete rewrite of Perl, and
it's much easier to think of it as a complete new language instead of
similar to Perl 4 -> 5 and comparable to Python 2 -> 3.

But if you had any idea what you were talking about, you already knew
