Well, if they are any good we'll just port them to Python. "import
re2" and we are all set. Everyone wins.

Overall, there seems to be some kind of minor consensus (to the extent
it means anything in the internet) that perl6 is a disaster that is
taking way too long to happen. Implementing (rather making the design
decisions) py3k seems trivial in comparison.
