I'm going. A conversation could be valuable and I'll certainly
attend[1], but I'm not sure it'll jumpstart anything. It seems to me
like the P5EE effort suffers from (a) Perl folks being suspicious of
standards (and who can blame them, seeing what's happened in the Java
world), and (b) lack of tuits.
