I've promised myself that I would refrain from replying to anything you say. Because you accuse people with love of Perl, and Perl 6 in particular, to always get personal, ad hominem. Since you clearly are getting personal here, I feel freed from my promise to reply to your comments.

Stuff happened in the past. Things didn't go as planned. It took way longer than anybody anticipated. Some people kept going on when others gave up on the idea.

But, now we have not one, but at least 2, possibly 4 viable versions of Perl around. Diversity is good. TIMTOWTDI.

Can we please, please, look towards the future instead of mulling about the past?

Thank you in advance.
