The general idea of a VM is well understood, but of course, Perl has never had one, more or less. Are there any projects they'll now get to do in Perl? Is anyone thinking that Parrot somehow elevates Perl to a more mainstream enterprise platform (along with typing options, etc.) versus Java (for instance).
I'm thinking Parrot, along with Perl6, may be a bit groundbreaking, but I'm often quite naive and am looking for outside comments and ideas to help shape or stimulate my thinking.
