Larry is already writing a p5 grammer for perl6/nqp, and had with MAD a working src-level translator.

Very interesting, Is this work there somewhere on the internet or Larry is still developing it in private.

I am thinking of an implementation based on vmkit to replace parrot or write a better p5 vm, codename p2.

Again is this work there some where on the internet.

      I do not believe Larry has lost interest. He's just a busy guy, mostly focused on helping get Perl 6 to 6.0.0, writing his new Perl 6 book, and so on. Here's the most recent exchange I'm aware of with Larry Wall about MAD. Also, as noted in the p5p email exchange Reini linked, "we've been asked by Larry not to actually purge them from the source".
