Yet it does say something about what the majority of real people think. Should 
the "people who actually do the work" care about "real people"? I think so, 
if they expect "real people" to use it at some point. So far I haven't seen 
any news about Perl6 itself in bloody ages, yet parrot keeps galloping along, 
release after release. Maybe I don't have the right to say this, but the 
people working on Perl6 need to get their act together if they ever expect to 
get something usable done.
