Actually, a comment came up this morning that with the additional
parsers that are being developed for the engine (e.g., p5 regular expressions,
wildcarding globs, etc.) it might be more appropriate to call this
the "Parrot Grammar Engine" instead of the "Perl 6 Grammar Engine".
(And somehow "PGE" seems a nicer acronym than "P6GE", and somewhat easier
to type.)

So, unless there are any objections, I'm going to switch things to 
use the shorter name as well as fold in Luke's namespace changes.

As far as CVS goes, we'll avoid the directory rename problem by simply 
creating a new "compilers/pge" directory and put things in there, then
retire the old "compilers/p6ge" directory.  There's not enough CVS 
history worth preserving to need to deal with a CVS directory rename.
