What would "save" Perl?

While I despise Quora, because this is public I wanted to post it.

Ovid’s 2 answers:

  1. function signatures (now in Perl as syntactic sugar for otherwise accessing the function args from inside via special variables)
  2. better object protocol in the core, rather than only in Moose.

Not sure if he’s correct about other languages not dealing with concurrency in core though. Stackless Python? Erlang might not have counted as popular but its popularity is certainly increasing.
