Good idea. A fat new O'reilly tome will go some way to capturing mind share
for perl6. Gathering ideas wiki-style is also very Web2.0. Perhaps perl6
could be marketed as such, what with the development style - "Perl6, the
first Web2.0 programming language".

In any case, if the book comes out around the same time Perl 6.0.0 comes out
there's still plenty of time ;-)
