No, not at all.  Why shouldn't perl be able to adapt to any situation?
Not only can perl6 be a tool for all jobs, but it's implementation can
conform to a wide range of target sizes.  The implementation can become
more modular with corresponding better support for module configuration.

Never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
