This is exactly what the advocacy group was supposed to 
help deal with. In typical perly fashion, noone was 
able to agree on answers for these sorts of things.

One other issue with Java is that there is a lot more
training out there for it. This means that Average Joe
Programmer types are more likely to have had exposure
to development with specific tools in the language.

With Perl most people just "pick it up". Aside from any
of us who can going out and teaching it at local public
college extension programs, what is there we can do? 

Of course, people calling up the local extension programs
and ASKING for Perl classes would help enormously...
