I wonder... if parrot is supposed to be this virtual machine
for dynamically typed languages and it'll one day do things like
Do you think there will ever be a PHP to Parrot compiler?
Even if it were limited, it would sure mess things up for the zend business
On the other hand, it sure would be nice, a large problem with mod_perl is that
it can't be used on a shared host.
Seems like mod_parrot could allow perl to get past this problem in a limited
kind of way, (Assuming it can be configured to enforce some degree of isolation
between requests) skipping ahead of PHP.
All that PHP stuff could be 'compiled' for mod_parrot and we could get get back
to doing web stuff in perl.
Would parrot provide the type of isolation between requests (more importantly,
*users*) on a shared apache server?
How likely do you think this is?
