Question for you.
You are a lot closer to Parrot development than I am. However as an outsider I've given up on Parrot achieving its original goals. Has there been any sign that what I complained about there is changing? Is there, for example, any sign that we will someday have a version of Python running on Parrot that can pass the Piethon? Like the Python and JPython do, and IronPython almost does.
After this I've wondered from day one how incompatible behaviours between different languages will be handled. Everything from minor discrepancies (eg whether you create new copies of data upon assignment, or upon modification) to major design issues (eg how you break down your error-handling hierarchy). But over time I've become convinced that we'll never get to the point where we have to worry about that.
I'd love to be wrong on this. I really would. But I fear I'm not.
