OK, maybe not "soon".  Let's go with "eventually".

The last version of parrot I tried to build gave me fits, so in the
mean time I've rebuilt pugs without parrot embedding enabled.

This does build successfully in mock, but rpmlint screams, which is
why I'm holding off submitting it for real.  :-)

While the package definitely still has issues, it does work nicely.

 $ pugs -e 'my @n=<<Perl6 is cool>>; "@n[]".say;'
 Perl6 is cool
