Any divergence should have good reasons.

To expand on my comment in Re^5: Recap: The Future of Perl 5, any of the P6 OO semantics which assume stronger type guarantees and identities will be troublesome to implement in Perl. Smartmatch is the best example of that, but type coercions will also be interesting (and not in the fun way).

    Not sure what type indenties mean°, but stronger type guarantees could at least happen at runtime, or am I missing something?

    Perl 5 already allows to define a type in declarations (see my ) but alas it's only (mostly) a placebo. Would be interesting to know what the plan was...

    °) you probably mean what JS is handling by the difference between == and === ?
