in thread How I came to contribute to Perl 6

I have to agree with Limbic~Region - we do try to give helpful answers if the answer is already specced and/or well understood. As it is the nature with evolving languages that's not always the case.
If there is some feature not yet implemented (built-in functions would probably be easiest) that you want to see - go ahead and write it

I'd like to point out that (since June 25th) you can also implement operators in Perl 6 in Rakudo, with only marginally more effort. To get the right precedence and associativity you should still register it in src/parser/grammar-oper.pg, but the actual implementation can be done in pure Perl 6.

[Corion]: As for somebody hosting national conferences, we don't always know the kind of connectors and aspect ratios available ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: well sure, but that's the similar to any printed document, and the margin is diminishing with today's technology. Video games no longer have to assume that the CRTs won't show the edges of the screen.
[Corion]: If you cram your slides with that much information, they might work in an "offline" situation but not very well for a live presentation IMO
[ambrus]: Corion: in that case I also ask the people who rent the conference rooms to tell conference organizers about the available tech.
[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
[ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
