So, perhaps I am just missing something here ...
You appear to either have developed ... or to now be seeking gratuitous public payments so that you can develop ... “a Perl-5 compatible optimizing compiler.” And, also apparently, you will not be dissuaded from this quest: every few weeks, another ...
post... shows up here.
“Okay, we get it.” You have (at least, started to) create(d) a static-code compiler for a dynamic language, and you have produced some impressive-to-you “benchmarks.” This, somehow, is supposed to be (a) “breathtakingly impressive,” and (b) ipso-facto worthy of a material underwriting contribution.
So far, if I may be so blunt-and-rude as to be the one to say it, it seems to me that the one-and-only distinguishing factor between you and the “Perl-6” crowd is that you seem to be asking for money.
“Yes, as a matter of fact,I do ‘have money.’” As do we all. What have you done to deserve it? Did the Perl-5 community ever ask for “an optimizing compiler?” (Likewise: did it ever ask that the Perl-5 language be utterly re-designed?)
