  • Yes, I knew it was coming, ultimately Larry's plan is merely to encode regexps as XML! This will make things so much easier in porting from Perl 5 to Perl 6. No longer will you need uglinesses like:

    /^
      (\d+)        # id
      (T?)         # TP
      _
      (\d+)        # SeqNo
      X
    /xg

    And instead we can have beautiful XML regexps like:

    /
      <start-of-string/>
      <capture>
        <one-or-more>
