Alas, the poll asks about pragmas, whereas Acme::ESP is a module. A no-doubt useful module, but unfortunately not applicable here.

As for telepathy, I typically recoil at the introduction of the paranormal into software. After all, with this pragma, more and more programs might end up just being

use strict; use warnings; use telepathy;
There would also be the temptation to add use babbage_spirit_channeling;. Enough of these and few if any non-pragma statements would ever be necessary. In the interest of job-security, these 'enhancements' should be avoided at all costs. I have already sent a note to the Perl6 development team to drop any plans to include a 'virtual ouija board' into the core system.

However, I do recognize those that embrace a spiritual/mystical aspect to programming, and would be more than willing to add with the_tao;, which would croak if the program lacked balance and harmony, based on the Tao. I have it on good authority that zentara has already hacked this into the version of perl he uses
