So, perhaps I am just missing something here ...

You appear to either have developed ... or to now be seeking gratuitous public payments so that you can develop ... “a Perl-5 compatible optimizing compiler.”   And, also apparently, you will not be dissuaded from this quest:   every few weeks, another ...




... shows up here.

“Okay, we get it.”   You have (at least, started to) create(d) a static-code compiler for a dynamic language, and you have produced some impressive-to-you “benchmarks.”   This, somehow, is supposed to be (a) “breathtakingly impressive,” and (b) ipso-facto worthy of a material underwriting contribution.

So far, if I may be so blunt-and-rude as to be the one to say it, it seems to me that the one-and-only distinguishing factor between you and the “Perl-6” crowd is that you seem to be asking for money.

“Yes, as a matter of fact,I do ‘have money.’”   As do we all.   What have you done to deserve it?   Did the Perl-5 community ever ask for “an optimizing compiler?”   (Likewise:   did it ever ask that the Perl-5 language be utterly re-designed?)

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