Since the regex engine is not re-entrant,

Yet.

My money is on dave_the_m getting it re-entrant before 5.10, which will just be one of many regex enhancements that will be in 5.10. (The short story is the engine will be a lot faster for many regexes.)

    Oh. My. God.

    I want. I want badly. Drool. (How did I not hear about this?)

    Hmm, who wants to bet that a Perl 6 alpha will be out first? :)

      Ill bet against that. :-) Although I'm not sure if its sporting, as I probably will be trying to help dave in his efforts... In fact I feel a little guilty I haven't already helped more.

    That would be the evilest ever, making 5.10 wait on that. I don't see why it hasn't just been pushed out the door already.

      5.10 isnt waiting on it. Its just that i think dave might have finished before 5.10's todo list is exhausted and we reach a feature freeze.

      Frankly i appreciate the extra time as i have more regex improvements to deliver and with the nice weather, world cup, and life, ive not had as much time or inclination lately to focus on hacking perl. I mean Frankfurt doesnt get the much nice weather and I dont want to miss what we do end up getting.
