Good gods, this is the absolute perfect response to the OP's question.

$node->++ for 1 .. Inf;

Programming isn't about the language you use, it's about what you do with it. In Excel::Template, I just removed the usage of a feature in ExtUtils::MakeMaker because it was the source of 50% of my bug reports. Portability is hell, but Perl makes you face it.

Another is featuresets. PDF::Template has to depend on Unicode::String, but only if you're not Perl5.8+ - what's the best way to do that? It's not so easy ...

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
