06:41 nine ugexe: this would be much easier if your arguments didn't make as much sense :)

18:38 ugexe I also suspect this would affect installing 2 different versions of the same distribution. Consider two installed distributions Foo:ver<1> and Foo:ver<2>, both of which provide Foo::Bar and `use Foo::Bar` inside Foo.pm - if I `use Foo:ver<1>` it would be expected that `use Foo::Bar` inside of Foo.pm (for v1) loads Foo::Bar from the same distribution and not from a possibly newer or older distribution
18:38 ugexe of the same name
18:39 ugexe if I `use Foo:ver<1>` in some script^
18:42 mst ugexe: I've always wondered whether within-dist links need some sort of 'use Foo::mine'
18:45 ugexe mst: I had that same thought today

19:31 nine mst: I wonder if there are any ugly workarounds left in your Alien::Rakudo package now that the prefixes are separated?
19:32 mst nine: no idea, I need to finally get back to kicking that
19:32 mst nine: I take it rakudo's Configure now has --prefix= --moar-prefix= --nqp-prefix= ?
19:33 nine It has a (documented) --with-nqp. It gets the moar-prefix from nqp.
19:43 mst I am going to have to find out how much of that works then :)
19:43 mst (my first guess would be "most of it, for most people, and then I'm going to snap it anyway")
19:46 * nine is looking forward to that
19:47 mst it is totally at the top of my list of OSS technical stuff to do
19:48 nine Well I do hope that your workarounds can be much less hideous now :)
