I've wondered why PDL isn't more popular, more of a thing in the wide world
of science.

And PDL was very much in mind during the early & mid design stages of
Perl6. There's a huge opportunity for Perl6 to be a great platform for data
science if it can add PDL's data-crunching performance & expressiveness to
its already wonderful concurrency models.
