They've just got to turn the last few red and yellow boxes green, and then it's all done.
I don't think so. It has admittedly been a while since I looked at Rakudo, but when I did look at it it was unbelievably slow and huge compared to Perl 5.
Getting Rakudo to "work" in the sense of implementing the Perl 6 spec may be doable. Getting it to be a viable and useful language comparable to Perl 5 in size and speed? I'm not holding my breath.
