An idea; perl6-modules.  This would _not_ be akin to c.l.p.modules, not
for general CPAN use, but for core modules.  Much has been bandied about
regarding the potential modularization of parts of the core; I don't
want to discuss that, but I do imagine that:

1)   Many current core modules might need to be updated, perhaps we
would take the opportunity to rewrite.

2)   Some new modules might be necessary to implement current core

I imagine this to be separate, though not unrelated, to the general
language design, and such a list would focus more on how to and
prioritization of such implementation, as opposed to language
decisions.  It might also be accessible to many people who want to help
implement, but not feel comfortable messin' with the core.
