Ok, fair enough. I think that perl should have a two-tiered process though, and
it should be ongoing and two tiered.
Bryan Warnock mentioned PDD as being 'comprehensive', but I think that is a
mistake. There should be a more formal process for distilling conversations,
lest we repeat length(@array), '??', etc, ad-nauseum. PDD should be stuff
that was decided as 'golden' and then implemented.

Fair enough too, except that my time *too* is bursty, and that the time I can
give may or may not correspond with community time. I'll write them down, and
post them to perl6-rfc (or perl6-meta).
And if they miss the 'original' pass, that's fine with me.
