Did you mean "prog-dreams"? ;-)

My 2 to this discussion:

The most interesting parts of the Perl6 project were:

  • a JIT compiler tuning the execution nearer to C-speed
  • an orthogonal redesign allowing much easier language extensions in the future, while Perl5 is stuck in a byzantine labyrinth of patches and patches of patches.

    Unfortunately for most of the messages I read from the Perl6 team, I have to admit:

    I'm really sorry, but I don't understand... 8-(
