in thread The future of Perl?

"Oh, you're a Perl guy? I'll try not to hold that against you."

A while back on the PDL mailing list, Karl Glazebrook proposed that the collective noun for a gathering of python programmers be a "smug".
It occurred to me that python programmers might, in response, assert that the collective noun for a group of perl5 programmers is a "cemetery".

Any thoughts on the collective noun for a group of perl6 programmers ? ... an "hallucination" perhaps ?

    A hallucination, maybe, if we're going to pronounce English properly.

      Only in 'ertford, 'ereford and 'ampshire. Elsewhere it 'ardly hever 'appens :-)

    Perl 6: Blue Sky? Bleeding Ledge? Daydream?

    My outlook for Perl 6 is still positive, though it has certainly taken its time. Perhaps if it had been "finished" 10 years ago, we wouldn't be having this discussion?
