     3We would like to ship Parrot as a relatively lean VM with a minimal core module 
     4set, and move all additional module installation out to an external ecosystem. 
     5This page is a very rough draft of a proposed module ecosystem for Parrot. 
     6 
     7As of mid-August 2009, we have reached enough general agreement on the initial 
     8rough draft to begin coding a very simple prototype.  It is believed that some 
     9of the undecided objections to the current draft will be easier to address once 
     10the prototype is operational. 
     11 
     12It is intended that the draft proposal and the prototype be iterated together, 
     13eventually reaching the level that they (or successors, if we determine major 
     14rewrites are needed) can be supported by the Parrot team.
