I would be very interested to see something that allowed Rakudo to
talk to Fortran 95.
I am going to use Fortran 95 for my thesis work, and maybe I could
write a module to give Rakudo a basic array language. Nothing fancy
like MATLAB, NumPy or PDL, but enough to try out algorithms and
prototype ideas. As it is, I'll probably use PDL or NumPy for that
