While I mostly agree with this there is one use case for P::C that hasn't been mentioned yet, but I can see the potential benefit.

Let's assume that I always use the two argument open. But that a few days ago, I made a new year's resolution to embrace three argument open as a matter of personal preference. I could use P::C with a highly stripped down configuration to remind myself not to use two argument open on all my code for the next couple of months until muscle memory takes over.

So the use case is: reminding yourself about style guidelines that you have decided to follow, yet sometimes forget through laziness or force of habit. After a little while you probably start doing it automatically and can then abandon P::C. Or you don't, and decide to go back to your old way.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
