I think it is ok to use complex perl if you leave a simple comment over it that explains it. Or you could do something I saw in production code for a Fortune 500 company.
# DO NOT EDIT THE NEXT LINE... IT WORKS AND THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Why do you people insist on doing things sdrawkcab?

    Exactly. If I have a really efficient/ugly/erudite line or two of code, I comment above it that

    ## This is where the magic happens ##

    So that (a) I can find it later, and (b) J. Random Neophyte (see gloryhack's post, below) might not screw with that line after turning off the strict pragma.

[Corion]: Hi Discipulus!
[marto]: hopefully you guys are also well :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - I'm looking for a week off in a week, even if it'll be a trip to Amsterdam ;)
[Discipulus]: oh thanks, i'm always at well as the ratchet or bucket
[Corion]: But I'm slowly starting to get into programming again - yesterday I translated my talk for YAPC::E (in Amsterdam) to English, and decided to put my Jekyll-clone to rest for the time being
[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
