I think this will see a lot of use, not just in terms of people really
outside the perl6 project, looking at it, and wondering what's taking so
long, but also people on the semi-inside, trying to remember things like
"I'm sure there's a reason other then C<< if condition_without_parens
{block} >> that we can't have C<< %foo  {'bar'} >> DTRT, but I can't
remember it", which certianly happens to me fairly often.

Also, as a checklist for proposals.  If you're thinking of proposing
something, go look there.  If it's already there, do you have any new pros
to put against the existing cons?
