Yes, the adminstration and networking policies at many companies
are broken; unbelievably so, in some cases. I don’t believe that
makes it a bright idea to hang the “which modules do we put in
core” albatross that caused so much grief for p5p around Perl 6’s
neck yet again. If we have to pander to the clueless in order to
make life easier for those in the trenches, I suggest that a
Perl 6 distribution that includes as many modules as feasible be
maintained as a strictly separate project. But the P5ish emphasis
on core modules has to go.
