  • This one I found rather peculiar, and I can't remember who said it to me (at YAPC):
    • Paraphrasing: Perl 6 won't really prove itself as a language until it is self-hosting.
    My response was simply, Can you name any dynamic languages that are self-hosting? No one at the table could – perhaps someone else knows. Personally, I don't see why this matters so much. Perhaps some benefit would be derived from having parrot (or whatever the ultimate VM ends up being) be self-hosting, but I'm not convinced of that either.
