I think that's pretty good. Though personally, I can imagine the first
two not being mutually exclusive. That is, if Rakudo 1.0 is released
but Larry Wall hasn't said that Perl 6.0 is ready, I'd scratch my head
and wonder. In turn, if Perl 6.0 is ready and Rakudo hasn't released a
1.0 I might figure that they still need more time.
