in reply to Hacking perl

Had the idea, got some confirmation that it was a good one, wrote the patch and got the rejection note!


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.

    That's a damned shame. I think "say" would be very handy to have. Did they really reject it because Perl's getting old?
