Told-You-So: Python 3000, Perl 6
Both Python 3000 and Perl 6 were planned to be complete rewrites of the respective languages.
What's with the Mascot RFC thing. I perceived an implication that the Camel mascot has trademark problems (as in Camel cigarette). That is way too funny if true.
Seriously though, John, thanks for the link. Some great stuff there that I did not know about. Cool reading lies ahead for me.
To be honest, the main sticking point for me with Perl 6 is that it's such a radical break, I might as well learn another language...
The Camel problem is that ORA own the Camel mascot. This could be seen as a bit of a problem.
