Indeed, what you are currently reading in S16 is mostly just lightly
edited copy-paste from P5 docs. But the S16 draft is out in the pugs
repo for a reason--anyone and everyone on this thread should consider
it perfectly okay to take S16 in hand and refactor it mercilessly.
Any shortcuts we wish to install into the final Perl 6 can easily
be done at the last moment by the prelude aliasing common operations
into the core language.
Anyway, feel free to coordinate this here and/or on #perl6. (Note
that Patrick is in the process of moving all the Synopses to the pugs
repo at some point soon, so the current S16 in pugs/docs/Perl6/Spec
is likely to have its name/location changed soon.) If you need
a pugs commit bit, please ask in #perl6 on irc.freenode.net.
