WRT PR, we need someone who speaks like Larry would, with full
authority of recognized correctness (but not infallibility, of
course).

Python has Guido.  Java has Gosling.  C++ has Stroustrup.  C's
original designers are still around.  In addition to the tribal
elders, all the committee-standardized languages have committee
members who can speak up and explain why things are as they are.

What's the common factor?  Perceived authoritativeness.

Larry would be perfect for Perl PR -- and in fact he did it for a
while, when Perl was young -- but he's a semi-recluse now.  (Not that
there's anything wrong with that.  (Spoken as a fellow semi-recluse.))
