I'm more or less an ex-Perl user now. I lead the open source Squeak project, and typically use Ruby where I used to use Perl.
I would like to find a new maintainer for Archive::Zip because I really don't have the time or memory for Perl to do a good job on it.
Toby Everett and I wrote Class::Prototyped, which is an interesting Grand Unified Theory for Perl, merging protototype-based (Self-like) and class-based programming with such wonders as auto-delegation and a nice reflection system that makes it easy to do things like manipulate the inheritance structure, override subroutines privately, etc.
