    I'm excited as heck about Perl6. I can't wait to start taking advantage of coroutines, continuations, and hyper-operators. Since Parrot is being built largely with Perl6 in mind, this suggests that Parrot will have a flexibility that few other languages can touch. While much of the Perl community seems excited about this, I can't help but wonder about non-Perl communities? We'd like to see other languages such as Python or Java use the Parrot VM, but do their communities see any benefit to using Parrot?

      From what I've heard there are a lot of other Ruby people who see benefits to using Parrot. The ones who don't already will quickly be won over by the improved speed and flexibility. I'm sure a lot of these people will also contribute to the project. I see it as a start of a beautiful friendship :).

      Rephrased: If you build it, they will come.
