It is. Because Perl 6 has extremely high demands on compiler writers.

Maybe it has too high demands ? I'm not kidding.

    Maybe it has. But you can't know from just looking at the time frame. TimToady usually says he'd rather like Perl 6 to take longer than finishing on time, and being crap. I agree.

    Still we are well aware that some things are very hard to achieve, which is why occasionallly features are removed from the spec. See S01 for more thoughts.

    Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.
      Every body agrees with that!! The question is how much longer????
        As long as it takes.
