Yes, I agree with you, Arunbear, the ecosystem is a major part of production readiness. And I said that the P6 ecosystem is not as rich and mature as its Perl 5 counterpart, but that does not mean that it is inexistent, far from that. As I said, there are several hundred modules out there. You have a module installer (it's callef zef, it used to be Panda, but Panda has been replaced with zef a few months ago), which, as far as I tell, works flawlessly. And you have modules which make it possible to run Perl 5 modules (so almost the whole CPAN), as well as C, C++, Python and Java libraries.

I am not quite sure about all the details at this point, but it is now possible to upload Perl 6 modules to the CPAN. I suppose the existing modules will be moved to the CPAN with time.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
