I'm enthusiastic about Perl 6.  I'm the PR guy for TPF.  My problem  
is that I have nothing to tell people about Perl 6 that is  
interesting to them.

People want to know when something will be done.  Anything.

All I can tell them now is "Work is happening."  I can show shiny  
deliverables of Parrot, for example, but the general Perl population  
isn't interested in Parrot.  Pugs is doing amazing work, but it's not  
Perl 6.

People never ask me "Tell me what work is being done on Parrot and  
Perl 6."  They say "When will Perl 6 be out?"  That is a question  
that continues to be unanswerable.
