Ever play Jenga? Blindfolded? In the dark? Over a tank of sharks who've been 
watching cable news? Also, the instructions are in a macro language that's 
only ever accreted over time.

TPF would probably have to find and fund another couple of full-time 
developers to get the Perl 5 core suitable for this sort of thing. Think a 
year to figure out what has to be done, a year for the XS layer deprecation 
notices, and a year to get it done. That's 5.22 or 5.24.

Will there be a Perl 6 implementation suitable for general deployment by 2016? 
That estimate seems aggressive to me.
