Ok, I've pushed to [0]. I've upgraded the rakudo packaging to upstream 
2011.04 (the latest), and ported my changes on top of it. It's IMHO mostly 
done, but there are few things that should be done (e.g. rewrite the 
description... I couldnt come up with a decent one, and probably something 
more that I overlooked).

Also, I noticed that currently the package runtime depends on parrot-devel,
which is IMHO wrong (it should depends on just parrot). This is caused by
the fact that some files needed by the compiler are shipped in the -devel
package. I'm not sure this is a real issue in the parrot packaging (I can 
be wrong) but it might be worth disccussing it. Any thoughts?
