in thread Perl allows package names consisting entirely of colons

Or, you may find yourself painted into a corner, whether through your own brushwork or that of some else, and in need of a quick fix now, pending an extensive redesign to accommodate the required fix in an architected fashion.

All the principles of least surprise and proper encapsulation can -- and should -- be thrown out of the window, when a fix is required now.

Pragmatism over pontification.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    Well, my point was freedom over proscription and prescription is the only path that affords growth and that the smartest guy in the room today isn't the smartest guy who will ever visit the room regardless of how many dummies come and go. Talking of, uh, damnit, tye would have the right pun here.
