in reply to How much Perl6 have we got? (take 2)
Hmm. How exactly am I "compromising myself"? Some would say that's a bold statement; others would say I'm just crazy; some would call it "faith" even. I don't see the compromise.
Anyway, asking "how much Perl 6 have we got?" is a little like asking a painter how finished is his painting. Some artists will have what looks like a finished work to everybody, but from inside the artist's head it looks completely wrong and decidely unfinished. As an artist, the proximity to completion is not something that you can readily quantify.
Perl 6 will get here when it gets here. How much have we got? We've got most of the spec. We've got several implementations. At least one of those implementations puts us nigh on to full bootstrapping. Not quite there yet, but close. Close enough that I'd say, "Perl 6 will soon be here" :-)
