in reply to Junkyard Wars, Perl Style

While not exactly what was proposed here, another possible idea in the vein of perl golf is to have people solve a problem, using a fixed number of variables or functions. Eg: "Write a sort subrouting without using the sort function, and only one temporary variable." (I dunno if this can be done, I only offer it as an example of what can be done). Maybe call it "Junkyard Perl" or the like. (This is similar to a suggestion above, but making it a bit more explicit.)
