Since it looks like we're really going to have Perl6 within a year or so, what 
are the "must have" modules folks will want before they can consider using 
Perl6 in production? Right off the bat, I see a need for the following:

  DBI (I hear Tim Bunce is looking at this)
  Template Toolkit (I've heard rumors that  Andy Wardley is considering this, 
but I'm not sure)
  Some object-relational mapper
  mod_perl6 or some equivalent
  An HTML parser
  Various testing modules

Some of those are already in Pugs, or are at least started.  Much of the rest 
can be hacked up on the fly.
