    Hehe! And also:

    • "The bearing of a child takes nine months, no matter how many women are assigned."
    • "Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later."

    (Both from Frederick P. Brooks's "The Mythical Man-Month".)

    But... is the person you're answering to really talking about adding cooks or about adding ingredients? Well, I guess it may well be a matter of personal taste and interpretation, or pov. And anyway... does adding ingredients increase cooking time? In principle yes - obviously. It all depends on whether it does so negligibly or considerably, and how good the final taste will be!

[1nickt]: What do you all think of experimental = refaliasing ? Anyone using it?
[1nickt]: \my %foo = { bar => 1 }; say $foo{bar};
[Corion]: 1nickt: Would be great, especially for naming parameters in @_.
[Corion]: When you pass an arrayref, you get to treat it like a local array. But then, I'm cautious with the experimental features, because just when I thought function signatures were a set thing, there is a proposal to use sub [ $foo, $bar ] { ... } to ...
[Corion]: ... declare the parameters, instead of the more common sub ($foo, $bar) { ... }
