There are several Python projects that I wish I could use without having to reimplement their functionality in Perl, such as the Kid templating engine and Demokritos, an implementation of the Atom Publishing Protocol. Note that the Parrot Native Call Interface will also make it much easier to provide bindings to libraries at ABI level, eg. if you wrote a single Gtk2-Parrot binding it would be available instantly for all languages hosted on Parrot, and unlike XS modules in Perl 5 it wouldn’t need a compiler to install, massively increasing its reach. In short, a whole lot of duplicated effort at the plumbing layers could go away. Regards, -- Aristotle Pagaltzis // <http://plasmasturm.org/>
