in thread Perl 6 is going to get a lot faster in 2013

Speaking of documentation, I was trying to figure out how to do some basic introspection stuff in the December release, and had no luck. Things like browsing through loaded modules/classes (keys %:: in Perl 5) and getting the current scope's variables (PadWalker), both useful for tab completion in the interpreter. Neither the regular nor the debugging interpreter seems to provide this information, and it looked like I might have to dig down into NQP or (shudder) Parrot to find it.

Is there a Perl 6-level way to get at this that I missed?
