Nope, that's because the people who would use Perl to "throw together a website" are now using PHP and its libraries instead, and good for them. People interested in writing games, applications or well-designed websites (to say nothing of its core "throw together a script or one-liner" market) still use Perl.
I see your Flanders & Swann and raise you a John Lennon:

There is this odd ideal among music lovers that just because you enjoy a certain kind of music so much you will feel obligated to pay for it out of the kindness of your heart.
It's not an "odd ideal": I support bands I enjoy to encourage them to produce more music I like. I agree that many people are music listeners rather than music lovers, and definitely this argument doesn't work for musicians who are dead (I just can't afford to pay them to perform again). That's why the mass music industry is so jittery about piracy: it's music listeners who want most to listen to music for free or almost-free (on subscription-based services or internet radio) who will be the first to leave them.

What exactly is it you think you're going to hear in the jungle that will keep you alive?
Somebody shouting "Oh shit - a panther! Run!"?

I run Linux you insensitive clod.
Oh wow! Now that's prescient.
