in thread Perl Best Practices book: is this one a best practice or a dodgy practice?

My copy is at home, as is my co-worker's copy. Hopefully I'm not saying something fundamentally stupid here.

Perhaps the solution to this entire muddle is to have as the first line of commentary after that best practice read:
Allowing the same name ensures your program will operate correctly when users, inevitably, do specify the same filename. Be Prepared, as the teach Boy Scouts 1.

1 If you have trouble remembering the Scout's famous motto, seek out the Tom Lehrer recording and have that song play through your head while coding.

[perldigious]: Also, made the unhappy discovery that the ticks have become active already this year... I really, really hate ticks.
[Lotus1]: perldigious I found out recently that opossums are very good at killing ticks.
Your Mother is lucky to only have to carry a kayak 15 feet to put in.
[perldigious]: If I was given the option to remove either mosquitos or ticks from the world... I think I'd pick ticks, even though I'd guess most would go the other way.
[Lotus1]: when they grooms themselves they eat any ticks they find. and apparently lots of ticks latch onto opossums.
[Your Mother]: There is a nice looking—don’t know first hand—new tool being market for removing ticks.
[Your Mother]: (marketed)
[Lotus1]: at least ticks don't fly
[1nickt]: We have a new tick in cenral New Jersey this year. The Lone Star tick -- no Lyme, but will give you an allergy to red meat!
