You are absolutely right. Your co-worker is an idiot. Perhaps you can walk him through the likely fate of such "improvements" when Perl is upgraded or a new machine is built!

I once saw this kind of upgrade performed on Apache::Session. I had found a bug in a contractor's code which could cause deadlocks in Apache::Session. To "fix" the bug the coder removed the locking code from Apache::Session! There's only one word for that - awesome.

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
