I think Brock makes a good point: the compiler and interpreter could be
cleanly separated; of course, they both need to be new in the perl6
project; but the interpreter, for example, could be functionally
equivalent to the one in the current perl5.  The (new) compiler could
be made perl5-compatible at first, and changed (since it will now be
easy to change) as perl6 is developed.  Or we could just leave it at
that and declare victory.  :-)
