If you want to express your general disappointment that christmas hasn't
happenend yet -- well, yes, from my limited perspective, it's not that
long that perl6 can be distinguished from hot air.

Btw, i enjoyed your talk on continuations at the very same perl workshop that
Damian Conway -- sponsored by TPF -- performed his evil show. Hot air?
I'd call it a breathtaking experience with immense inspirational repercussion.

So if you have a word of warning regarding GIMP development, i think you have to
be more specific. Seriously, i fail to see any reason why having a credited
developer working full-time should not result in a huge boost for the project.
