In order to put together a worthwhile survey, I think some "meta-discussions" about the questons/answers we're likely to encounter are important. I also think the existence of a survey itself is likely to re-open a variety of otherwise dormant Perl 6 discussions and threads (as it already has), so we should be cognizant of that potential impact. Still, if others feel that the "production release" meta-discussion is too far off-topic for consideration in the questionnaire, I'll let it drop here and perhaps reintroduce it under another thread.
