I'm not saying that context sensitivity is bad. I'm saying that switching contexts should be lossless. Lossy context switches lead to hard-to-debug issues.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

[1nickt]: chacham I have wanted to, and dones so, and so stated in a reply, and been roundly downvoted 2-1. (I assume for attempting to censor.)
[1nickt]: pryrt yes, I see. There is no way to differentiate without forcing to a string and all sort of weird stuff. It is enough. User 42 can get creative if s/he wishes.
[chacham]: i sent him a private message expressing my displeasure.
[1nickt]: chacham It was worse than 2-1 ! almost 4-1 !
[jdporter]: Dang. No good example of how to use IPC::Run's run() in its simplest mode?
