Better performance is one of if not the key issue for adoption of Perl6 in production.
Correctness of mathematical calculations is probably taken for granted by most unsuspecting users.
+1 for this work.

Zoffix++ did a great work for Perl 6. Performance and Bug fixing are very important.

Offering "proper numbers" by default for arithmetic on perl 6 is a great feature, but the performance cost can be quite noticeable. I'm looking forward to having the impact mitigated. I believe Zoffix is well qualified for this work and has already done good preparation and research up front.
