in reply to Cor—An object system for the Perl core

A couple of basic procedural questions about the coring:

1) Will Cor be getting added to the core language or the core distribution? In other words, if you want to use Cor's syntax, will you need to use 5.whatever; or use Cor;?

2) Will Cor be available on CPAN for use with Perl versions prior to its inclusion in core? If so, do you know yet what the earliest supported Perl version will be?

I'm not likely to use it for my own code in any case (I'm one of the weirdos who actually like bless), but I manage systems running third-party Perl code for my day job, so, if Cor gets significant traction, I'll be interacting with it regardless.

    Cor is probably going to be part of the core language. There will be no need to use Cor;. And Cor might be available for earlier versions because there's some transpiler work being done to target older Perls.

    Absolutely none of what I say is a promise :)
