Some people demonize languages for adding syntactic suggar, but I think this is what can make them really great. It raises the language (perl6 in this case) to a meta programming level. In a similiar way people refer to LISP as a meta programming language (while there the "meta" stems from the powerful macro language which again is LISP). I love that.
