Since Winxed is a third-party language, I'm +1 to seeing it leave
core. I don't think parrot should
integrate with Winxed. Again, as a Virtual Machine, Parrot should
concentrate on herself. If some platforms need Winxed, they could
install it themself. If parrot really really really really really want
integrate with some children, please consider rakudo firstly. Though I
don't want to seeing it happened. I like Winxed, but also Rakudo.
