That implies that there would ever be a sufficient number of companies
putting Perl6 into production as to make a job market in it viable.

I'm still in favour of dropping the 5 from the current production version 
number, ie make the next release Perl 12 and have done with it.

Perl6 is not Perl - and having them both thought of as "Perl" will only
allow the Perl6 effort to poison the well for Perl, without actually 
providing an ecosystem to replace it.
