a worthwhile replacement for Perl 5.
I still don't get all this endeavour to re-write P5 in P6. P5 is perfectly embeddable.
Just embed perl5xx.dll/.so into the P6 compiler and provide:
Full compatibility at a stroke, and full P5 performance (within the p5 code), and a small hit through the thunking layer.
How hard could it be to write the thunking layer? (It's gotta be easier than recreating P5 + XS + everything else.)
I effectively do exactly this in my 15-line Perl5 REPL.
