in thread Dangerous diamonds!

Larry and the perl 5 porters who wrote it expected it to behave that way, as would anyone who read the documentation.
But is it the sane thing for it to do? I think not. Neither does any of the other opponents, I would think (tye, Juerd).

The most sane thing to do would be to drop support for 2 argument open, putting mode and file path into one argument, completely.
