As an experienced Perl programmer, what's your opinion of Raku? Is it a worthwhile replacement or too little too late?

Perl5 still works fine, and is maintained.

It's been too little too late for many years, while it was still named Perl 5 for so long.

Raku is the new name for Perl 6, not Perl 5.
