in reply to Best Perl Practices reviews?
As many of the other reviews undoubtedly explain -- but I'll repeat here for the sake of convenience -- the best thing about PBP is not necessarily the recommendations themselves (though many of them are excellent!), but rather the frame of mind it encourages. It asks you to consider your practices, make informed decisions, and stick with them. It also gives you a framework of practices to decide on. Even if you disagree with Damian's choice, at least you've made a choice (where before you might not have even thought about it). Highly recommended.
