[OT] perl and CLRs

Sometime ago I asked the question as to whether it was worth looking at 
producing a CLR such as monos (or even [spit] .NET).


It seems to me that although the people that replied said "it couldn't 
be done", all the other major scripting languages have (or nearly have) 
managed it. I can't believe that producing a mono/.NET backend for perl 
is impossible - it might be limited, it may well break modules in CPAN. 
But it *is* the way the world is going and it does leverage work done 

Do we *really* want to continue to hold our noses in the air?
