You mean call it "Rakudo Ruby" because Ruby has only part of the features of P6? We could name interim releases after competing brands as they get left behind: Rakudo Ruby, Rakudo Python, Rakudo P5.... (We're already too late for "Rakudo PHP", I'm afraid.)

Perhaps it's worth asking what we might call the release after that one.
"Rakudo not-quite-so-lite"?

Rakudo ** (aka "Rakudo Exponentiation")? Though I think Patrick is optimistic that development will proceed exponentially enough that a single interim release will be enough to hold us over until Christmas.
