I see what you're saying! Then again, this goes back to the definition of a JAPH... The term just-another-perl-hack(er), in my vocabulary, doesn't directy imply that one needs to write obfuscated code to be noteworthy. Someone that hacks should be regarded as code-smart and not necessarily (albeit, usually) cryptic or misleading.
