Is it just me, or is all this talk about precedence and functions vs
operators vs methods creating a niggling sensation in anyone else's
head? It feels like we're in the vicinity of another one of them Big
Simplifying Idea things. Unfortunately, I don't have the actual Big
Idea, so it could just be a false alarm.
On the one hand, I'm worried that Perl6 is going to turn into the
computer equivalent of Quenya, which was never completed because its
creator couldn't stop tinkering. (No offense to Larry intended..) On
the other, given how much design thought has gone into it thus far,
much of it radical, it would be terrible to miss an opportunity to do
something great in the rush to git 'er done.
