> Parrot has been moving along quite well. Perl 5.10 will be based on it.
Really? That's not the impression I get from the 5.9 snapshots. It may be that 5.12 will be based on it, but that will be the far future. I don't expect 5.10 to be out this year. If it will be out next year, it's 3 years after 5.8. If it takes another 3 years for 5.12, then we'll see a Perl on Parrot in 2008.
That will still be sooner than Perl 6 though.
