Agreed. I generally try to code defensively, but in the context of my original question, I am trying to make the defensive code implicit (Perl automatically tells me when and where I used an uninitialized variable) rather than explicit (adding code to check if a variable is unitialized then dying/warning if it is).
Both have the same result, but I think the former results in cleaner code.
