in reply to Perl 5.10.0 or Perl 5 Version 10?

I propose that Perl 5 be redesignated as Perl. That Perl 6 be renamed Pirl; and the imminent Perl 7 be called Porl. This will
  • give us both greater differentiation and clear continuity;
  • let us develop synchronyms;
  • allow us to more finely assess the cluelessness of those who misspell or mispronounce their P[eiouEIOU][rR][Ll];
  • and, hopefully, give us time to resolve the matter of y being a vowel or not.

Be well,
rir

      I'm sure that would make the Yoplait people happy. Whether we, as a group, are ready to turn our backs on caffeine is questionable.
