As in Util's entry was unsporting? Or my comment?
Neither. I meant to say that it seemed unsporting to give the victory to the P6 entry, since the language has such a clear edge in concise, expressive power.
If the implicit aspect you're speaking of is a general P6-isn't-Perl sentiment, well, I don't subscribe to that.

- The sense that it's not quite production ready, and
- I'm gonna have to seriously raise my game to get the most out of it when it is.
