in thread scope of "use strict"? (needed: "superstrict")

In my experience, people dont 'design' modules to only work without strictures. More typically, they dont 'use strict' because, and I quote, 'you just end up with lots of annoying lines getting in the way' (I had an experience somewhat like that today - the developers had a huge script with everything as a global. And to top it all, I gave him a function to do some parsing, which promptly broke when he removed all the 'my's' in front of the lexical variables. A stern talking-to then ensued).

...it is better to be approximately right than precisely wrong. - Warren Buffet

[hippo]: Why not?
[1nickt]: That's good! I suppose the cpanfile would be the same however the app distro is structured ...
[1nickt]: hippo no reason why not other than wanting to check an assumption :-)
[hippo]: For a self-contained application which can therefore ensure thread safety it seems like a sensible approach.
[choroba]: No, if there are no threads, then the user wants to use MCE. If there are threads, the user can choose.
