[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?
