I think Elf could very well be added to those.

Again, Elf is a nice, large example. :)

Counting up the lines of code in November:

$ find lib -name \*.pm | xargs wc
    1618    5351   46558 total

So 1600. But as always it depends on how you count:

* Blank lines, comments...
* We have another 1697 lines of tests.
* We've factored out the module HTML::Template so that it sits in its
own project, but those 500 lines of code could still be considered to
be part of November, since they're run when November is.

Depending on what you mean by significant, I'd also like to direct
your attention towards SVG::Plot, proto, Gamebase, CSV, Druid, Form,
HTTP::Daemon, Perl6::SQLite and Web.pm. All of those can be downloaded
via proto.

Moritz++ and I were talking about making a graph showing the increase
of Perl 6 projects lately. Proto's project.list contains all the
pertinent history, so half an hour with git-log and SVG::Plot ought to
be able to produce something nice. If no-one else takes that as a
hint, I might look at it soonish. :)
