I have good and bad news for you,
bad news come first:

my expression is this - all new software mostly scripted with python - KDE GUI stuff (kig etc) or editors (e.g. notepad++ or sublime or whatever), the further we go the less perl support is.

python gained much momentum, and - I join the opinion - that damage bringed into community by perl6 in its current state is huge and continuing.

Perl5 is much better than python, but python is better maintained - e.g. look at Qt support - python have latest Qt5, perl have NONE...

now the good news:

  • the situation is not likely to become worse than now, it is mostly stabilised.
  • And you can often use Inline::Python, for
    • either utilising forgotten CPAN library (so you can use Qt from Perl using python support)
    • or just to reuse new library that is available only for python

Fortunately Inline::Python is in a great shape now, and sponsored by grant.

I only miss one thing - http://pypi.python.org/pypi/PythonPerl/0.9 - which is abandoned and not available at their site - maybe Stefan Seifert (author of Inline::Python) will help me with this?
if so - nothing to worry about, the future is bright, :)
