I happen to love perl for getting quick, one-of, temporary jobs done very easily, but if you really want perl to have corporate use for real long term projects, you are bound to run into people like me who wouldn't touch perl for production use with a ten foot pole (sorry :-). Perl really is a write-only language, and you just can't do production work write-only - someone has to maintain production code, and the language is so fantastically huge, no two programmers even appear to be writing in the same language. I'm not sure what feature you could deliver to address this problem, but there's your first challenge :-).
