And here they are...  this is just a draft -- feel free to flame/edit/
tear it apart liberally.  These are also written assuming we don't
create a perl6-general list (but it shouldn't be hard to adapt them
should one be created).

    Moderated list for news of new lists, working groups, and so on. 
    Summaries from the top-level working groups are also posted here.

    Discussion of the perl6 language, focusing primarily on the
    design of the language itself and its desired (or unwanted)
    features.  General questions about the Perl 6 language tend
    to come here, as well as patches and suggestions for improving
    the Perl 6 design documents (Apocalypses, Synopses, etc.).

    Discussion of the design, development, and implementation of
    Parrot, the virtual machine underlying Perl 6 and other
    interpreted languages.  Messages here focus on implementing
    and testing the Parrot virtual machine, patches to the Parrot
    implementation, porting Parrot to other target platforms, 
    the components and design features needed for Parrot to 
    support higher-level languages, and selected high-level language
    compilers (e.g. Tcl, Lisp, etc.).

    Discussion of the development and implementation of Perl 6
    compilers and runtime components, including Pugs and the
    Parrot Grammar Engine (Perl 6 rules).  Questions, bug
    reports, and patches regarding existing Perl 6 compilers and 
    runtime components go here.
