Is there an updated pull request for NQP? The old request
at https://github.com/perl6/nqp/pull/36 can no longer be
In general, there seem to be a lot of references to ".main_sub"
in the NQP patch that I'm thinking shouldn't be there, or should
be called something else.
Looking at Rakudo #102, I'm a little concerned that the patch seems
to assume that $precomp.main_sub() is an equivalent replacement
to the old $precomp... if I understand the eval_pmc branch
correctly, that's not necessarily the case.
