in reply to Practical example of "Is Perl code maintainable"

Yes, I like your version more than mine, especially the nice comment.

This example does highlight what was perhaps a design mistake in Perl 5, namely the magical performance hack via the "_" special filehandle ... which I'm sure will disappear in Perl 6. Though tricky and magical, one cannot ignore this special filehandle in practical Perl 5 programming for performance reasons, so the best practical step is to use and comment it, as you did.
