    Right, your reply didn't imply that. And I'm glad to hear there are people following Parrot/Rakudo progress with a sense of excitement. One sometimes forgets that, what with detractors being louder and all.

    The fact is that many things are amazing. Just using the subset of Perl 6 that Rakudo provides... it's quite an experience. At the same time, it's not all roses either. If I were some kind of brainless sycophantic groupie, I would perhaps sweep the bad parts under the carpet, and wail "Rakudo is the most blatantly brilliant thing since Michael Dorn!".

    But it isn't, and I don't. Instead, I try to give a sense of how frustrating and confusing it sometimes is, and how it's really everyone's and no-one's fault. I'm happy this attempt came across as having humour; that's much preferable to just being a lot of whining.
