    In large part, Perl 6 has been designed not by a committee. (By special request of the committee...)

      Yeah, and you've done a really good job of it. I'm not saying that language-design by non-committe is a bad idea.

      However, there's still *years* worth of work in documentation, testing, and library writing still to do before Perl6 can really be production ready. The problem is that as it stands now, none of that work can be started because everyone that is non-cabal is in the dark about the details. Can't the rest of us do *something* in the meantime?

        Perl 5 will still be used for years. How about working on
