Speaking for myself, well, hepatitis was the major reason I stopped coding for Perl 6, and though it was not anywhere near serious enough to require liver transplantation, it did take me many, many months to recover.
It's true that when I recovered in 2009, my internal trauma blocked my contribution to Perl 6 for a year. However, I gradually grew out of that -- and imvho, reconciliation is the best kind of social sublimation.
So please contribute to fglock++'s Perlito or any other implementations you see fit, but as the trauma is over for both me and chromatic++, please kindly refrain from introducing more drama on that particular setting.
Thank you for your understanding. :-)
