That's what I also hope, but I don't think it will happen too soon.

PHP, C#, Java are much more prefered, because the programs created with them 
can hide the source code much better, while this is not possible with Perl. 
This is a big reason why the software companies that create custom programs 
for their clients prefer to use those languages and not perl. Not because 
perl is bad.
I hope Perl 6 will also solve this issue...
