    Thank the almighty for you magnificent beings working to deliver us unto the Perl 6. Seven years-ish ago I abandoned PHP upon discovering the beauty of Perl. I've never looked back, and this sort of nonsense just reinforces my decision. If I could lay a big wet one on you, chromatic, and Larry Wall himself, I would not hesitate to do so.
    • Remember, the quote is from just one person on the PHP list, and I certainly don't mean to imply that all PHP developers share that notion. However, it's a scary idea.

      I appreciate the support, but in lieu of a sloppy wet kiss, can I ask you to download any or all of Perl 5.10 RC3, Parrot monthly releases, or kp6 releases, run the tests, and report the results to the appropriate venues? That would instantly elevate you to a magnificent being in my book.

      • Say, what would be the appropriate venue? I download/compiled/tested Perl 5.10 recently (mostly wanted to play with smart match). All tests passed. Is that a report that would be useful to someone, somewhere or do you only need failures?
        • Successes on platforms more exotic than x86 GNU/Linux or x86 FreeBSD are nice to have. Failures are always not nice to have but good to hear about. The appropriate venue is an e-mail to perl5-porters@perl.org.
