A big +1
jnthn++'s past work produced a very tangible benefit to the Perl 6 compiler and we want more of it.
As always, Jonathan's work is among the best possible places to invest Perl 6 funds. He consistently produces a high volume of core fixes and improvements that very few if any other developers on the core team could manage -- certainly not as fast as he does.
I strongly support granting this extension request.
+1, jnthn++ did a great work already.
jnthn++ has done a ton of great work optimizing the compiler, definite +1
jnthn is capable of tracking down and fixing the gnarliest bugs, and of sniffing out one performance optimization opportunity after the next. I've heard of a few things that are planned for the near future and I can say I'm already excited!
+1 of course.
jnthn had demonstrated repeatedly his ability to have incredible impact on reliability and performance.
He makes it possible to give Perl 6 the credibility to convince clients to accept product written in it.
Not only does Jonathan do excellent work that results in Perl 6 real-world performance improvement, he explains it so us mere mortals get a good feel for how he did it!
