Unfortunately, the "X-factor" is a relatively well-known and verified marketing gimmick. The "eFactor" is probably passe as a relic of the dotBomb era. The "iFactor" has some merit, but runs afoul of both Apple and variable naming conventions for integer types.

How about: "The language formerly known as {unpronouncable symbol}" ... carries a certain mystique, and stylishly reduces to simply "The Language."

    Brilliant! Yes, let's call it "The Language" in common parlance. That works for me.

    print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);
