I can get a feeler for that just from monitoring the discussion, or
lack thereof.  For the first crack at design, I think I should aim to
make rational choices rather than "democratic" ones.  If I make a
choice that there's a groundswell of antipathy towards, then we'll need
to take that into account as we revise things.

But considering that the whole reason we're having Perl 6 is because I
want people to tell me where my blind spots are (or have been), I hope
to demonstrate some degree of sensitivity to the needs of others.  :-)
