I'm mainly interested in people who will do things.  Dick volunteered,
and time will tell how much information he'll provide.  He only
mentioned contacting his customers and feeding back information he
learned that way.

No company has cash in perl6.  I'll gnaw my own scrotum off before
Activestate, O'Reilly, Manning, Microsoft, or IBM have a corporate
stake in perl6.  Dick's only into this because he has access to a lot
of people that we don't normally have access to, and because his
company will do better than it is if perl6 meets a wider need than it
currently does.  He's only one element in a larger corporate liaison
picture, but he was at the meeting and offered enough to go forward.

If someone else wants to organize a larger effort, that'd be good too.
I'd want to know who was heading it up and what was planned.
