Perl is not dead (part 2)

Perl is the internal combustion engine of the programming world. There are a lot of newer sexier languages, that just don't have the installed base yet, and don't have the legacy code yet to drag it down. In five years I would like to hear people who have to learn ruby so that they can maintain today's newest Ruby on Rails application. I doubt it will be any better than any other language or framework. Don't get me wrong, Rails is a great framework, but after five years of code rot, any project becomes a beast to maintain.
