[Pdx-pm] Rakudo Shootout Fail

Hi all,

It seems that everyone who looked at a shootout problem concluded that 
the problem statement was too opaque for them to implement in a 
reasonable amount of time.  While shootout problems are still valuable 
to implement in Perl 6, it would be easier and just as useful to 
implement some of the Project Euler problems in both Perl 5 and 6.


Ultimately, we just want to be able to compare rakudo to perl.  So, 
anything worth graphing is going to be useful.  Maybe we need a git 
repository for this?

perl -e 'srand; print join(" ",sort({rand() < 0.5}
  qw(sometimes it is important to be consistent)));'
