Re^3: Perl 6 shocking revelations #1by toma (Vicar)

I read the note at the top, and thought that 'it has not been accepted' referred to your paper, not the Perl 6 type system itself. I assumed that Perl 6 has some sort of type system, and it is approved at some level. So it didn't occur to me to read it as 'this paper is a proposal to change the Perl 6 type system.'
I would move the list of new and unapproved features from the bottom to the top.
I also suggest this pattern for the first sections. That is, move the conclusion to the top of the section, and explain what you are getting at. This drops the 'shocking revelation' motif, but would be an easier read. The text and examples are interesting enough. It doesn't need additional drama, in my opinion.
I think it would be interesting to continue demonstrating inheritance with the Complex and Quaternion examples that you hint at. You could show how they do or do not give correct answers when inheritance is used. What makes this interesting is that one would probably work, and the other probably wouldn't, which I think would make your point well.
It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
