I don't think there's a big knowledge base beside what the current Pugs hackers know. But if I were you, I would start a small step before, especially with experimenting with the "use perl5:Some::Lib;"-features and generally the current ways of intermixing Perl5 and Perl6. I would love to see a "Pugs Use Perl5 - First Blood" article somewhere, made from users for users. It's on my personal TODO list too and I will help you with experimenting, but I'm currently, erm, well, occupied with @otherstuff ("the same excuse as every year"). If you start experimenting and writing down something, expect me to follow you. If we know and document something in an easy understandable form, wxWidgets or any other lib can be the next step.
