Sorry if this is not in an ideal perlbug(1) bug report, but I couldn't figure out how to do it for perl6.

My understanding is that ':' is not a metasyntactic inside of a rule definition, ie., that it is literal.  However, it's getting parsed as something else, I'm not sure what.

rakudo: rule colons { :: };
:: not yet implemented at line 1, near " }\n"

std: rule colons { :: };
