Afaik, Parrot is still under _heavy_ development and mostly meant to be
used for Perl6 (i.e., I suppose that's what most development is targeted
at - see [1] for an overview of currently supported languages as well as
the respective development status). So, I'd expect a rather unstable and
/ or incomplete API, but that's just a guess. Personally, I'd wait for
Parrot 1.0. The development team currently releases fairly frequently
and the latest release was called "the final countdown", so I'm
expecting 1.0 to show up fairly soon[tm].
