in reply to What esteemed monks think about changes necessary/desirable in Perl 7 outside of OO staff

Currently, the big push is to turn on warnings and strict by default; I like the initially slow approach. I don't have a strong opinion about any of your suggestions (good or bad) because I see none of them as particularly disruptive. Heck, I'd be happy to to have say and state available without turning them on explicitly. Ultimately, I just look forward to moving towards a more aggressive model of having new features on by default.
