Good god - its only been a few hours. Give people a chance ;-)

The thing I find most pleasing is that we'll get XS support (from the Ponie FAQ):

The guts of Perl 5 will be ripped out and made to work using Parrot PMCs rather than Perl 5 Sv structures, which will mean it will be compatible with Perl 6 . Any XS-based code that uses the published Perl 5 API should work fine without any problems.

XS code was going to need rewriting with previously discussed P5/Parrot layers so this is excellent news.

    You know, I was rather astonished to see my post. I woke up this morning realizing I had posted something and wondered what it was I had to say. Apparently, ActiveState's idea of a party is "what? Are you still standing? Here, drink this."

    I've just swallowed three Tylenol and will soon be sending a few more down in search of the first three. OSCON is brutal. Good brutal. I think.
