I'm sorry? Are you seriously saying that you believe that my being willing
to dogfood some perl6 stuff for minor scripting of my irssi setup should
be taken as an endorsement that the code in question is fit for every day
use in general?
Traditionally, one finds ways to dogfood stuff explicitly *because* the code
isn't ready and trying it out oneself is the way to irish mine clear the most
egregious problems, so this interpretation seems deeply strange to me.
