    Yes you're perfectly right. One should see how much existing codebase is affected. Perhaps it should have been there from start. In any case I can see that p5p would hardly risk even if they found the feature as desirable as I do. But... if that's "what I would like to see in Perl (5.12)" ... well, this is one such thing!
