in thread How I came to contribute to Perl 6

I have to agree with Limbic~Region - we do try to give helpful answers if the answer is already specced and/or well understood. As it is the nature with evolving languages that's not always the case.
If there is some feature not yet implemented (built-in functions would probably be easiest) that you want to see - go ahead and write it

I'd like to point out that (since June 25th) you can also implement operators in Perl 6 in Rakudo, with only marginally more effort. To get the right precedence and associativity you should still register it in src/parser/, but the actual implementation can be done in pure Perl 6.

[GotToBTru]: that page, strangely enough, never mentions that construct
[LanX]: ; is for optional prototypes
[LanX]: & is codeblock @ array
[GotToBTru]: okay, that is there in the text, not in literal use in any of the examples
[GotToBTru]: the text suggest it is redundant before @
[LanX]: propably ... I also notice new stuff
