Jonathan is the right man for the job, he contributed many great features and bug fixes to Rakudo and parrot so far, and interacted very will with the community.

The experience has shown that Jonathan's previous work on the object system and the dispatcher have been a very solid foundation for both user programs and other parts of the compiler (namely writing built-ins in Perl 6 would have been impossible without it), so I think the features he wants to implement are well chosen, even though they might seem a bit obscure to some.

D6, implementing traits, also implies that parsing improvements that are badly needed for using STD.pm, Larry's Perl 6 grammar written in Perl 6.

I'd just like to chime in on Moritz' praise of Jonathan. It has been exhilarating to observe all the progress so far. Looking forward to more of the same.
