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.
