Agreed, with the condition that we all make the specification for it
together, and it remains compatible with `par' that will be shipped with
Perl 6.

And I'll probably ask you to use another naming/extension, like pp5 (par for
perl 5), so that modules for both versions don't get mixed up (since they'll
be incompatible).

Other than that, I believe developping it for Perl 5 is a very good idea,
since it will let us see if we need another features, and make benchmarks
with all proposed formats. And probably `p52p6' can be used to translate it
to Perl 6 and include it in Perl 6 distribution, cutting much work (and
time) when Perl 6 is ready.
