So true!  however, even if I did outsource, I'd want to be able to read 
it or be able to hire someone local that could... that is only downfall 
I can see... the extra cost of hiring an interpreter in addition to a 
programmer (if it's outside my or my team's knowledge set).

But all in all, I'm looking forward to Perl6 (okay 90% of me).. the 
other 10% is "uuugh, I have a lot of work to do to convert and/or recode 
the schtuff"
