Don't worry, they already know that perlcc is a bloated mess.  The
current thinking is that the perl compiler infrastructure will be used
to translate Perl5 -> Perl6, which will have a cleaner syntax, better
compiler, etc.  Of course Perl6 is in the early design stages (at best),
so don't expect this for Christmas.  ;-)

May the best description of competition prevail.
