Just to add another perspective... I should note that ongoing
changes to the perl6 specification have _not_ been obstacles
or deterrents to getting the Perl 6 on Parrot implementation
in place -- in fact, they've been uniformly helpful.
The delays in the Perl 6 compiler for Parrot have been largely
due to other items, including time and the design work needed
for some of Parrot's compiler subsystems, libraries, and tools.
