Looks interesting. But is anyone actually able to run this?

Parrot is apparently a VM that Perl6 runs on, but the install script throws a syntax error when run with Perl6. With Perl5 it complains about a missing `parrot_config`.

What are the strengths of Parrot as a platform compared to other VMs?

As a result of my research trying to answer this question, I now think it would be interesting to use PyPy to implement arc, if nobody has done so yet.
