Well it's good to have this as an option in Perl 6, but Perl 5's
typing is quite excellent as-is. Rarely have I ever had to worry
about these details. The biggest typing problem in Perl 5
is constants. Perl 6's constant attribute will be a much
desired feature to me. My real fear is that Perl 6 could be
abused when people start making things strong for no reason (especially C-programmers).
KISS applies here. Perl shouldn't read like C... It should
read like Perl. Also, the addition of attributes could potentially
make for a sticky situation if attributes are abused to do the
job that was really meant for an object. (Can this happen?)
