Two things to note:
1) It's a shame that perl did not come up with named captures. It was already available at least in .NET (and Ruby, I believe?) before perl 5.10 was released.
2) %+ is rather slow.
That said, named capture *is* a godsend. This feature belong to the "how did I manage to get by without this" category.
