I want to avoid that fate, and to focus on things where I feel I will make a difference in the future, the way I feel I have, in the past, with Perl.

Thanks for all that you have given to (and given up for) Perl

Oh my, what else can I write? By my (possibly buggy) analysis of
perlhist.pod you've made as many maint releases of Perl as I have, but then
also cat herded seven .0 releases to my zero. I doubt that this is going
going to be surpassed (by any mortal human).

You're a much better language (re)designer than I am, brought a lot of
insight that I missed, and have way more patience and diplomacy than me.

Keep doing what you find fun, and please visit at some point.
