Fair enough.

Obviously it would be great if that happened, and by the time the code
part of Perl 6 is releasable we have all those other things.  But if we
get to the state where core Perl 6 is ready to unleash on the world as a
stable release, but it's still the case that:

* The OO documentation, while readable and complete, if given a little
  more structure would be better for computer parsing.

* We haven't finalized the Web module.

* There isn't a fully working Perl 6 implementation of 'Duke Nukem
  Forever' in the examples/ subdirectory.

... then I don't think it would be worth holding up Perl 6.0.0.'s
release to wait for any of those things to happen.
