17:15 sorear PRE REPORT
17:15 sorear DID: talked to japhb about val; decided to talk more later
17:20 sorear random things implemented: two-level attribute names, direct references on $!foo, trusts, junctions in MMD, sub-signatures, literal constants as types in signatures, sub-form mixins, "where", sub-signatures, "does", Mu.clone
17:21 sorear interesting stuff: roles, constant folding, new Rat/Complex stringification spec
17:22 sorear potentially contentious stuff: tweaked STD to parse role Foo[$x] { ... };    Foo[4] more usefully
