    I haven't been following the Perl 6 topic too closely, but I remember last year, hearing something about totally rewriting the regular expression egine. If this is true, I'm going to run away and hide under my bed until it's safe.

    I am scared that someone will write a Python parser as a perl 6 regex.
      Nah, we'll run the grammar that exists through a translator and autogenerate it. Much easier... :)

      Well, someone on the CB did suggest that someone write a pythontidy script in Perl... ;)
