Kudos to Autrijus
Message ID:
It's been mentioned to me that some folks were surprised that the design team 
hasn't been more effusive in it's support for the incredible job that Autrijus 
is doing prototyping the Perl 6 interpreter over the top of Haskell.

We had thought that answering his questions about 1000 times faster and much 
more extensively that we ever answer anyone else's (;-) might have indicated 
how much respect and admiration we have for the work he's doing. But 
apparently not.

So let me publicly state that Larry, Allison, Patrick, Luke, Hugo, chromatic, 
and myself find Autrijus's work both amazing and amazingly useful: as a way of 
exploring the deeper design and implementation issues, and also as a way for 
people to start playing with (and experiencing the real power of) Perl 6.

Well done, Autrijus!
