Will, You forgot Wizard goccy (spelled "goshi") who started with this craze with gperl one year earlier. 3x faster than p2 ever will be, due to LLVM optimizations. But there are still some parsing issues. f/x doesn't look for the ending /, so div vs rx, f*k mult vs f calling with a glob, and so on.
goccy's planned release date is april 2014.
