in reply to Griping about Typing

Well it's good to have this as an option in Perl 6, but Perl 5's typing is quite excellent as-is. Rarely have I ever had to worry about these details. The biggest typing problem in Perl 5 is constants. Perl 6's constant attribute will be a much desired feature to me. My real fear is that Perl 6 could be abused when people start making things strong for no reason (especially C-programmers). KISS applies here. Perl shouldn't read like C... It should read like Perl. Also, the addition of attributes could potentially make for a sticky situation if attributes are abused to do the job that was really meant for an object. (Can this happen?)
