You guys are relentless aren't you?
From the first Rakudo/JVM "hello world" to being able to run substantial programs such as the subject of this thread took a further 6 weeks. Again, iirc, diakopter estimates that getting Rakudo/MVM to the same place will take about the same time.
Of course, things might not go according to plan. But my point is to respond to chromatic's misleading FUD -- "if MoarVM ever runs any Perl 6 code".
Update: In December (2013) Rakudo ran "hello world" on MoarVM. This means it successfully parsed and adequately compiled and executed the 16,000+ lines of Perl 6 code in the Core Setting (something like a standard library).
