The attached patch attempts to implement the WHO method from S12. With this patch, I get the following output: % ../../parrot perl6.pbc -e'class Foo::Bar {}; say;' Bar % ../../parrot perl6.pbc -e'class Foo::Bar {}; say;' Module However, this implementation has the following flaws: * the WHO package stringifies to the shortname, not the longname specified in S12. * The following identity test fails: % ../../parrot perl6.pbc -e'class Foo::Bar {}; say === Foo::Bar' 0

When this patch is applied/WHO is implemented, we should also do an update to the .perl method in ProtoObject to use the value of .WHO, not .WHAT.

We have a .HOW method on all object these days, so I hope nobody complains when I close this ticket.
