in reply to Perl 6 Apocalypse 2

In a few places, he refers to using periods in place of arrows for object methods, implying that that decision is a done deal and doesn't need further elaboration. But I can't find out where this was worked over. Has he simply not gotten around to discussing this yet (presumably saving it for Apoc. 12), or is it discussed in one of RPCs, or somewhere else? Or is it right there but I'm just reading past it?

    I don't know if it's outlined in any of the RFC's, but it's been a hot topic of debate lately on the perl6-language list.

      Thanks. I found this thread so far: Curious: -> vs .; it refers to other threads that I haven't traced back yet.
