[Vienna-pm] Perl 5 vs. Perl 6

 Programming in Perl 5 is like exploring a large medieval castle,
 surrounded by a dark, mysterious forest, with something new and
 unexpected around each corner. There are dragons to be conquered,
 maidens to be rescued, and holy grails to be quested for. Lots of fun.

 Perl 6 looks like a Louis-XVI castle and garden to me. Straight,
 symmetric, and bright. There are wigs to be powdered, minuets to be
 danced, all quite boring.
