In talking to Perl 5 people about my Perl 5 to Perl 6 docuentation,
trying to get some feedback on it from people who aren't already doing

"these are reasons Perl 6 is actually useful" would be very helpful.

have. So I picked the lock, opened up the suitcase, and started pulling
out all these dresses. After like the 10th dress, I thought, These
