Your honor the jury rules on the following counts.
clearer, more concise syntax
Charges not proved. Clearer != more concise sysntax. As has been mentioned many times with regard to sigils, a core perl design object was that different types of things should look different so as to reduce confusion
a shorter path to producing autogenerating documentation
Not proved. I wrote a simple but effective tool to add pod to an arbitray module class and it only took me an hour. But thats cause I used one of the most sophisticated regex engines there is: Perl.
having to only worry about, maybe, 4-5 different styles to maintain vs. 20
Not proved your honor. Complaints like this are redundant in the face of autoindenters like Emacs and PerlTidy. Does Python have a tidier?
far fewer rules to remember
Irrelevant. Try doing complicated things with simple tools and the result is convoluted.

Writing a good benchmark isnt as easy as it might look.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
