Controversial update to # riles the # / # community

I was just thinking (thanks to an # discussion this morning) about breaking changes in programming languages and how often they split the community (or get rolled back, sometimes before an official release). Examples: # 6 (now called #) was originally a replacement for Perl 5, but became its own separate language (and I’m hearing that Perl 7 is facing rough sailing with the language’s community, too); # 6, with radical changes that were scaled way down (PHP 6 was skipped, but later parts of the 5.x series and the 7.x series implemented some of the proposed changes). Then I come across this.
