Thanks for the consideration. And while I'm not a Perl newbie, I just set my foot in the Perl community, and this was probably my first meaningful attempt at questioning a language I used. So no matter how foolish, I won't think it was a mistake, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I ended up going back in time. I just havn't found a Time::Machine module to do that yet.

I do agree with BrowserUk on the point that the added keystroke for typing [ is not so much trouble though. Even if it significantly changed my typing time, it would not matter as much when compared to all the development time that does not involve any code-writing. I'm afraid this whole discussion comes from my failed attempt at poking fun at myself by pretending to propose a syntax change for my sole comfort, but I did get the answers I was expecting on my other points, so that's ok :)
