More on Perl 7

This hype about Perl 7 is so amazing, and even resembles the time when Perl 6 was around the corner :-) It's extremely interesting to read new posts and comments. Sometimes I find there thoughts similar to mine that I had a few minutes before reading that.

A guy in Moscow.pm mailing list gave another bright idea (RU) of why the "7" would be useful. This will help in communication with a sysadmin when they say in response to a request to install a new version of Perl: Hey, there's Perl 5 on the server already, what do you want from me?.

I would like to dedicate a time slot in the schedule of this year's YAPC::Europe for an open discussion of Perl versioning :-)

Also, this will be the official YAPC::Europe 2013 T-shirt design:
