Say, are you willing to become a committer in Pugs and commit those wonderful example scripts under examples/golf/*?
Yes. I'd like to add some tests and stuff too. It's only fair to warn, however, that I don't have huge amounts of spare time and there is a steep learning curve for me, but I hope to get there eventually and contribute something useful for a change.

Personally, I find it interesting to give Perl 6 a workout in writing very concise code. That said, I trust that playing golf (or writing poetry) is not part of the Perl 6 design team's design goals. ;-)

    Invitation sent. Welcome aboard!

    I think Perl 6 design team has a fair bit of interest in golf too... Only they call it huffman encoding. Otherwise how can you explain that $h.readline can be written as =$fh now?

      Just in the name of Huffman coding: couldn't  my @rev = reverse $f.readline() be made indentical to my @rev = - $f ? That would be the penultimate step in Perl golf...:-)
