  • The question is not "Is p5p willing to add new features to Perl 5?". That's simplistic.

    One question is "Is someone willing to implement a new feature some people want?"

    Another question is "Is someone willing to shepherd such a patch through the inevitable arguments on p5p?"

    A very good question is "Is some pumpking willing to commit such a patch?"

    An excellent question is "When will that patch be available in a stable and supported release?"

    There are many answers to these questions. In my opinion, they all rely on the fact that release managers drive the development of Perl 5 in the absence of a language designer.
