Of course you're right. But I wonder if it's deeper than that. Maybe this is some kind of brain-boundary thing, where one wiring prefers one expression, and another to another.

Programmers already know that learning a language is not trivial (if every language were like every other language, why learn a new one?). There will be unusual formations to any language (except perfectly regular ones, which are prone to being boring in my opinion).

In Perl's case the unusual formations are the shorthand used to get things done quicker. Larry's Hypotenuses.

And perhaps some programmers don't like shorthand (Java anyone? How about COBOL?).
