in reply to On timely destruction?

I've seen Tk based scripts rely on this type of thing to trap window destruction. There's obviously better ways to do that, so I wouldn't call it a show stopper.

It might be worth polling the Tk community though, as they've had a pretty good history of complaining about GC :). ( regarding Tk's destroy vs DESTROY, and the underlying XS code hanging on to gobs of memory)

[Corion]: Heh - vroom came with interesting news - the site will likely be migrated away from *BSD to Ubuntu soonish... Hopefully I can give the new environment a test drive before it spins up :)
[Corion]: Also, that likely means we'll get a newer Perl, so we could then move the codebase to newer features ;)
[Discipulus]: urrah!
[marto]: Hmm, I sometimes wonder if moving to a new framework (such as mojo) would encourage more developers
