Perl 6 disappears up its own arse.

The language will be dynamically extensible, using modules written in Perl. So you can program in a language that looks like Python, Latin, or Java, if you want.

See also: Slashdot thread on the Perl 6 showcase. Sounds interesting. I'm especially keen on the cleaning up of the OO syntax. But I'd be keener on some work to make Perl work better with databases, like PHP, but I guess that's not core.
