Moose is a sign of Perl's death, not of hope for its future. It just highlights the core language's deficiencies. Ten years ago, Perl was, indeed, a great language compared to the alternatives. Since then, Ruby and Python have grown into better languages than perl. They are both much more elegant and congenial to work in. Six years ago, I could argue that CPAN was a good reason for doing new development in Perl, but today there's so much good code in the standard Python distribution that this argument no longer holds. At one point, it seemed like the best developers were contributing to Perl, but today they're in the Python community.
