  Description     : implementation of Perl 6 for Parrot

 Rakudo Perl is an implementation of the Perl 6 specification that
 runs on the Parrot virtual machine.

I won't be able to upload this for a while, because previous to the
current git version the build system didn't work with system installed
parrot. parrot and rakudo release go together (monthly), but the
debian maintainer of parrot only uploads the "stable" releases. So I
have to wait for the next stable version of parrot to be released and
uploaded to debian, and then for the corresponding version of rakudo
to be released. So it will probably be a few months...
