Side note: do any monks use English for any production code?

Yes, but not religiously. We use it for some of the lesser-used variables, such as saying $INPUT_RECORD_SEPARATOR instead of $/. But we still use $_ instead of $ARG.

    No, never. If I had to go through the trouble of learning all those arcane variables, why shouldn't everyone else?
