Aaron, I think AJS Kwid is fine if it fits your brain. It doesn't fit mine in much the same way that Kwid doesn't fit yours, in much the same way that Pod doesn't quite fit either of ours. The interesting thing to me is that all 3 syntaxes map over the same data model and thus are easily interchangable. The other interesting thing is that all three could be supported without affecting the Perl5 or Perl6 syntax proper. Sam "mugwump" Vilain refers to each of these syntaxes as /Pod dialects/. He is working on more formally defining the common model or "AST" that these dialects map to. Given that, I am going to continue working on the Kwid dialect and developing the Kwid tools I have started. The ideas in AJS Kwid seem too different to incorporate without muddying the Kwid vision. I encourage you work on the AJS Kwid dialect too. I would guess that the Kwid tools I'm working on, when completed, could be easily adapted to AJS Kwid. Cheers, Brian PS All my work thus far is available in the pugs repository.
