Since Perl6 will treat any code as "old code" unless it starts with one of the new keywords, I'd suggest this site operate in that spirit. All code is Perl. Some is explicitly marked as being a new type of perl. Lack of such a mark indicates a compatibility with the old language.
Two technical helpers I'd propose:
- A checkbox above the "Your text:" could mark a node submission as relating to Perl6. Otherwise, let everyone assume (and comment) on Perl as they're familiar.
- The searcher, and the Monk's viewing settings, can and should be able to filter on that Perl6 flag. You could then ignore anything Perl6-specific until it's released, or you could ignore anything not Perl6-specific if that's what you want to see.

Snippets of code should be wrapped in
<code> tags not
<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
