in thread The right time to start a project?
People will be writing code in per5 for years, even if everyone switches to perl6 the moment the first stable version is released. Remember that the perl6 journey was started 3 years ago, and Larry hasn't even finished the language specification yet. Looking at the rate of the apocalypses, if you now start a 6 month project to write a perl5 module, you will be finished before the next apocalypse.
Not writing a perl5 module because you want to wait for perl6 would be as silly as the Beatles having said in the '60s, "we won't record this album just yet - we'll wait for CDs to arrive".
