At first I was overwhelmed by your reply, but it's soaking in... :)

My goal in the short term is to create an environment where regular
folks can start writing and installing and sharing Perl6 modules. It's
a lot of hacky work on various subsystems. And one thing I need is
config info.

Unfortunately, pugs has no object support yet. It probably will in the
next week or two. In the meantime I'll just wing it with an eye towards
the future.

Thanks for the mind expanding reply.

Cheers, Brian
