If eloquent code is the mark of a master programmer, Conway has proven himself....a hack.

    Acme::Bleach is elegant, not eloquent. Reading it is, to me, like tasting a fine wine. It's like golfing. Do you put golfed code into production? No. Is it neat to play with? Yes. Don't confuse items meant for one as items meant for the other. Eloquence isn't always the goal.

    Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

    Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.
