> The motivation is not to popularize Winxed but to discourage PIR, for the same reason that Parrot itself is written in C and not assembly.

> Trying to use Rakudo for this would be terrible.  Rakudo has layers of its own abstractions on top of Parrot.  Winxed and PIR are the only languages that target Parrot directly without adding their own abstractions, and PIR is pretty terrible to write anything complex in by hand.

Well, the original front is not written by PIR, it's by C.
