I don't know if any other monks agree with me, but the title for this node sounds a lot more controversial than it should. My first reaction was "What?!? And it's by Ovid?!?" I'd suggest changing the title to something like "'use strict' is not just for Perl".
But this is great information, and reminds me how much Perl (and this site) has influenced my other programming. My main job is to write ASP applications, and I admit I hardly ever turned on 'Option Explicit' or declared my variables until I started reading PM, and realized how horribly wrong that was. I'm still a while off from writing flawless code, but it's getting a lot better.
