Leapfrogging the bootstrap
Bringing whole module ecosystems to Perl 6.
Perl 6 and its implementation Rakudo are rapidly becoming ready for serious use. What's missing now is the huge module ecosystem that makes Perl 5 the swiss army chain saw it is.
Inline::Perl5 attempts to solve this by allowing you to use Perl 5 modules (including XS modules) in Perl 6. If that's not enough, Inline::Python may jump in and safe the day.
