Severity: wishlist

  Description     : Implements the Perl 6 'form' built-in

 Formats are Perl 5's mechanism for creating text templates with
 fixed-width fields. Those fields are then filled in using values from
 prespecified package variables.
 Unlike Perl 5, Perl 6 doesn't have a format keyword. Or the
 associated built-in formatting mechanism. Instead it has a Form.pm
 module. And a form function.
