	Hey Andres.

	Well, there would have to be a fully-functional language
running on top of Parrot first. We would need all of the libraries (and
all their dependencies) that Bugzilla uses to be supported on top of
some language that runs on top of Parrot. We would also need mod_perl
support or something equivalent for web-serving performance.

	As far as I know, any language that currently runs on Parrot is
several years (if not a decade) away from this level of support.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
