Hmm, good question. I don't recall it, but then I may not have been
paying attention. I do recall a bit of grumbling about the OO system not
being very nice. Mainly because that's one of the things I was looking
forward to. Perl5 wasn't brewing for nearly as long as Perl6 though.
I still think we should strip Perl6 of the title and get a small set of
big things (?) to go into the next version. The current Perl6 can become
Perl3000 or somesuch...
Sorry if I sound grumpy today, it is just becasue I like Perl and want
to see it evolve within my lifetime.
 my working lifetime ideally
