But.. but... but... we don't even have a design spec. I mean, we don't
even know for sure what Perl 6 is going to look like for certain, inside
or outside. Wouldn't we have to know the outside before we try to put the
insides together? Is there any action on the api lists that I'm not
seeing? If not, I'd say we've got the cart before the horse.
