Yeah, but the point with parrot is that the lead designer has kept the design *open* since the beginning. Sure, there isn't any code yet for the real compiler or real grammar engine. However, the design is still happening behind doors. There have been something like a half-dozen prototype grammar engines over the last four-or-so years done by many different people, and that's a lot of input that's being shut out.

    I bet there's been lots of errors, lots of controversial ideas discussed, and the desire to appear to have direction, not waste time with input from others, and leave it to the experts. It goes against how people think of the Perl and open source community, but I think that's the best way to develop Perl 6 for now.
