I see in this group all the enthusiasm for Perl 6 in our group that 
Soviet apparatchiks had for the coming of Glasnost. I figure that, like 
today's meeting, everyone will write Perl 5 code if it isn't explicit, 
and if I explicitly say Perl $n where $n != 5, participation will fall off.

I for one would like to see Perl 6 used in a sense that isn't pure 
example code, so if you want to take a shot, I'd be glad to see it. If 
someone wants to try it in Perl 2, perhaps a little less so. B)
