Enjoy the exercise! For the current state of the design, see: http://feather.perl6.nl/syn/ Note the embedded tests which are getting run. Perl 6 is happening. There's running code. There's a considerable test suite. The performance is shaping up. Even Perl 5 compatibility is being dealt with. If people don't know this and think its all a wanking exercise... well, that's a PR problem not a code problem.
