in reply to Why aren't you using Perl 6 yet?

The reason I'm not is the reason why perl had such a big effect on me, compared to C, which I made some efforts on about the same time as I was starting with perl. I was able to do something with perl.

I feel a meditation coming on. Something about top-down and bottom-up and how they meet in a muddle in the middle.

Anyway the problem space mutated learning perl. I am sure the same will bappen with perl6. In fact, I am building each of the releases of pugs and lurking on #perl6.

Probably I will start with something using Rules. I was trying Perl6:Rules with a parser, but it was segfaulting perl.

This is all bottom-up stuff. Essentially, my answer is pugs hasn't revealed a top-down problem like the White Rabbit that is exciting to chase.

The move from perl5 to perl6 isn't as exciting as that from sed to perl.
