Keep in mind that "ripping out Perl internals" doesn't automatically imply that the changes will be externally visible. They could, in theory, completely rewrite Perl's internals from scratch and still make the rewrite pass all the existing regression tests...

Now, to the extent that rewriting the internals gives them the mental freedom to consider an externally-visible change like using "." instead of "->" as an attribute accessor, there's some cause for concern. But given that I believe there's a stated goal for Perl6 to be able to run 95% of Perl5 scripts, I agree with the others about letting the discussions run their course and not worrying too much until we know there's something to worry about.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
