Oh, shame.

I'm down with that.  I think the Perl community and the communities
surrounding other dynamic languages share common cause a lot more than
we tend to assume.  Since Parrot aims to be a VM for implementing such
a wide range of dynamic languages, this seems like a particularly good
event for us to get together with our counterparts elsewhere.

Ah, a fine choice, sir -- that's a nice wee boozer.
