Elm could learn even more from Perl 6. One of our mottos is "torture the implemeters on behalf of the users." Another is "hug trolls" and try to turn them into productive members of the community. Or the even more basic approach of not removing features without deprecating them for a release cycle. And for crying out loud listen to your users, as they see edges of the software that a language designer can miss.

And how well has any of that worked out for Perl 6?

Working out better and better, thank you.
