in thread Religion in the Monastery.

All in all an interesting question, benn!

The answers, however, were brilliant!

I really dug Merlyn's response because it describes the source of my own beliefs.

The response that made the biggest impression was jaldhar's. Read the tone of the responses here, then head over to slashdot and read the comments that were posted to the previously mentioned Larry Wall interview. I think jaldhar is on to something...

Well done! Pats on the back all around. The level of respect shown here reflects well on the community -- especially considering the volatility of the topic!

[Corion]: Meh. I get the feeling I should post a call-to-action for people to test their modules with the upcoming 5.26 (or 5.25.latest), as it seems that the smoke testers don't really weed out modules that fail without . in @INC
[Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
[Corion]: (this post on nntp.perl.org / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
