en re; (low|high)magick,majick,...
How 'bout "black-magick" v "white-magick"?
I'll leave it up to the viewers, to decide to which Perl, one, or the other should be ascribed/applied. :)

#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
use Perl::Always or die;
my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
print $perl_version;

    Howdy taint,

    I like your idea! I guess in my mind all the things forbidden in The Low-Magic Perl Commandments are "grey magic" (neutral) at best and "black magic" (bad) at worst.

    Although the forthcoming "use magic;" and "no magic;" pragmas are seemingly binary in nature, in reality there is still a small amount of magic kept in RPerl, thus the term "Low-Magic Perl". I consider all the magic remaining to be "white magic" (good), such as memory management, garbage collection, hash data types, Perl's list of builtins, and other DWIM-like features. So the "Low-Magic" of "Low-Magic Perl" is "white magic".

    :-)

    DISCLAIMER: Nothing in this message should be considered canon, see RPerl.org for all things official.

    Perling,
    ~ Will the Chill
      "no magic;" pragma
      An alternative name would be:
      use restricted;
        smls,

        I like your idea!

        Perling,
        ~ Will the Chill
