  1. I wouldn't remove it.

    It would be (have been) a collective decision; had there been any interest.

  2. I'm not advocating its sudden disappearance from the Perl 5.something line.

    Just from the rewrite; had there been any interest.

  3. Any platform where there were 4 or 5 people prepared to take part in bringing a platform along for the ride, would potentially be supportable.

    But they'd have to be active and keep up.

  4. I would have thought that with Itanium (or whatever other hardware you're running VMS on?) likely to go away in the next couple or three years, you've got greater problems than the lack of VMS support in a non-existent rewrite of Perl.
