Thanks for your response.

I follow P6 the same way. Have you ever tried P6, eg by installing one of the compilers?

Note this recent comment about combined effort by Stefan O'Rear, Niecza's author. If a project does end up with multi-pronged effort like Perl 6, there can come a point at which the delay is mostly a sunk cost, and instead the project overall moves faster than it would if there were just one focus. Hence my earlier Hockey Sticks post.

I'm with you on respecting the contributors, having patience, and looking forward to the outcome. I'm hoping that Fivers in general trend toward the same perspective.
