in thread Two-arg open() considered dangerous

For the most part, I think this is probably simply a result of language evolution - I'm sure that even once Perl 6 is released, we'll still be finding syntactical anomalies that could better be rewritten and indeed most likely will be.

Don't get me wrong, this statement isn't meant to dissuade your argument, but rather support it - I see great value in your comments and its such comments that are required to drive changes. However, as with all aspects of Perl, its "perfection in progress" ;-)

    Well, I wouldn't call it a "result" of language evolution; it's more an impetus for evolution. :-)

    That said: I certainly wouldn't want to prevent Perl from being released just because of little warts like two-arg open. "Better is better than perfect." So I think we're in agreement on what to do about warts: Fix 'em and get on with life.
