Let me put on my cranky implementor hat here.

Not a good idea, probably. The cranky hat doesn't look well with my ";)".

The "should" referred to my previous estimate, not to any reality. To clarify it further: in order for me to "win" my own "contest", it "should" have been released over a year ago.

I agree with most of what you say, am semi-active on perl6-language (oops, sorry), and donated to the fund (and plan on doing so again, repeatedly once every year, if I can afford it). I actively discuss Perl 6 on several fora and in general am very positive. I agree with the "released when ready" idea and prefer years of waiting to having a horribly implemented language. I may not agree with every decision made (things bothering me are unicodenon-ASCII operators, confusing use of the colon, overuse of the new french quoty qw, \d**{} and arbitrary limits like do-while), but I think Perl 6 is a really cool language. I do not mind that it is not released yet for I understand that quality takes time, and that implementation with an unfinished design leads to chaos.

Please, get rid of the cranky hat and re-read my post. This time, pay more attention to the ";)" and read the entire thread in the appropriate context: fun speculation. Or buy me a cranky head too, so that I can start a troll/flame war. It would be about something else, though, because debate is HARD when you actually agree with one another.
