in reply to Level Proposal

I thought about this awhile back, and kind of compared it to a martial arts ranking. Eventually you get a black belt, and it stops there. But we all know that some people are black belts, and some people are _black belts_.

In other words, I don't see a need to break up the saints into various levels, but if you want, you could imagine that we are at different degrees of saint, i.e. I'm a lowly saint, but Ovid and merlyn are first degree saints. vroom would be an eighth degree saint. The degree doesn't really matter, but if you want something to aspire to, there it is.
( The formula, btw, is min XP = 3000 * 2 ** $degree )

    Depending on the martial art that you're studying, no, you don't get a black belt and it stops there. Just like the pre-black belts, there are rankings. Usually you start at 10th Kyu (kyu being beginner or amateur) and work down to 1st Kyu. Then you hit 1st Dan (dan being master), which is the beginning of black belts. Then you work your way back up towards 10th Dan (not many of those anywhere in any discipline). There is no stopping.

    The idea of different degrees of Saints is a pretty good parallel, though.

    (I'm not a black belt, but both my parents are.)

[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
[Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
[Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
[marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
[Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
[marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
[Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
