You are right, of course. How could i even dare to have a mind of my own? I am just a humble scribe, after all. ;-)

But may i, my dear abbot, beg to ask a humble question while i'm kneeling here before the holy camel?

The question is this: Why, if reinventing the wheel is such a bad thing, do we still work on Perl 6? ... No, wait, i just saw the error of my ways. If reinventing would be a good thing, shouldn't we have finished getting Perl 6 to a working state a long time ago?
