  • Before Moose, Perl6 was the great hope to fix a lot of the ugliness with Perl's OO. Perl 6 was like Perl 5 but more. However with all the community effort going into Moose and related MooseX stuff, I'm concerned that a lot of the great ideas in Perl6 are going to always remain too fair behind. It's starting to seem like Perl6 is like Perl5 but different. I wonder if there's some way to increase the communication between the Moose group and the people doing OO Perl6 stuff. There's a lot of little things

    • Perl 5 is pluggable, and Moose is a great "external" improvement.

      Perl 6 is (in the realm of object orientation without question) even better and more pluggable than Perl 5, and you wonder that the default isn't is as good isn't as good as Perl 5 with a bunch of the best modules available?

      I think thats an understandable position, but don't forget that Perl 6 leaves room for improvement. It shouldn't be all that hard to write a module that allows additional syntax like

      class Foo does SomeRole :except<methods you want ignored> { ... }

      We know that we're not perfect, which is why we leave much room for modifications later on.
