[DRAFT] Synopsis 31: Pragmatic Modules

The document is a draft.
If you read the HTML version, it is generated from the Pod in the specs repository under https://github.com/perl6/specs/blob/master/S31-pragmatic-modules.pod so edit it there in the git repository if you would like to make changes.
It is a general policy in Perl 6 that any pragma designed to influence the surface behavior of a keyword is identical to the keyword itself, unless there is good reason to do otherwise. On the other hand, pragmas designed to influence deep semantics should not be named identically, though of course some similarity is good.
All floating point IEEE modes must be lexically available via pragma except in cases where that would entail heroic efforts to bypass a braindead platform.
XXX FIX: I (Tim Nelson) have no clue as to what the above entails, so the spec does not reflect this XXX
