Discussion on: My unrealistic wish-list for Perl 7.x

There are lots of things broken regarding Unicode and UTF-8 in Perl and I really hope all of them are fixed before it becomes Perl 7.

My other favorite items are:

  • A nice OO framework built-in.

  • Proper exception handling with the core throwing exception objects instead of strings!

  • Oh, well, and definitively signatures!!!

  • A sane threading model (even if it is just cooperative).
