in thread The future of Perl?

I heard this argument that in process of Perl6 development perl5 got better OO, 'mop', Moose , etc etc etc

I am not bying this, and here is why:

Not a secret that most of these ideas was already in the air, and invented some 20 or 30 years ago...
and not a secret that LISP had better and superior OO system (CLOS) which was then stolen into the perl6...

In my vision, the people that were busy with choosing OO system for perl6 could spent their efforts and develop perl5 mop OO system directly from LISP to perl5, if they wish to.

What happened with Perl6 - is that at y2000 there was a number of inspiration based on success of perl5 and on fitire perl5++ which is to be perl6...
what happened then - after 10 years - the project stale, and then existence of the name 'perl6' became more of a problem, and damage to the community started happening.

You could accept that or not, but this is what happened.
Not recognizing this problem is another problem, which makes resolution even harder.

I was also inspired by perl6, and very much like its syntax and power....
but I do not see any usable implementation of perl6...
