perlop says the following about some of the quote-like operators:

Customary Generic Meaning Interpolates '' q{} Literal no "" qq{} Literal yes `` qx{} Command yes* qw{} Word list no qr{} Pattern yes*


Talking from experience, many programmers tend to use [] for qw, {} for q or qq or vice versa and etc. And they make "steel" rules about their own kind of quoting, the problem is that the other colleagues rarely know or remember those rules, because they have thier own or don't case (and why should they) or do not use those operators.

But does it make any sense, isn't it it much better if everyone uses these operators exactly in the way they are described in Perl manuals?
