in reply to The Perl 5 Conspiracy

I can't recall a single good idea accompanied by working code turned away in the past five years

I can. Two of them. Of course, you could argue about whether they were good ideas, and whether the offered code was complete in every detail.

Update: A link. (That was working code built on 5.8.6).

For the latter, there is little point pursuing fully tested and documented code, if the idea itself is reject out of hand.

For the former, I see that both ideas have now been adopted into 5.9.3

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
