in reply to use feature 'postderef'; # Postfix Dereference Syntax is coming in 5.20

Is it current policy of p5p now to extend all consistency still existing in perl5 with the statement modifier "except when"?

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    shmem:

    "except when"? No, I think it's more like they're going down the path of "given when" <rimshot/>

    I understand the desire to improve perl, but I don't feel like this particular change offers any benefits. I sincerely hope, though, that it doesn't cause me as much grief as smart match.
