Hi

Autrijus' journal mentions quasiquoting (Perl 5).
I was wondering how that would work.  Many languages use unusual
syntax for quasiquoting and code splicing but Perl 6 is already
nibbling into unicode.  

Does that mean macros will be grafting and pruning the AST that 
comes back from a quote/rule?
Or will there be syntatic shorthand?
