I can't recall a single good idea accompanied by working code turned away in the past five years I've read the mailing list.
I can. Migrating Win32API::(File|Net|Registry) into the core. Fixing pseudohash lookups so that things like
dont eat up all your ram (darned if i can find the mail that had the patch in it when i search tho). Fixing native Win32 command line handling so globbing is automatic as it would be on VMS and thereby simulating how it works on *nix. Fixing <> so it cant be used to rm -rf /. And thats just with a modest amount of searching, or asking in the CB. I'm sure if I looked hard Id find a bunch more.
I like the idea of votes. I think that certain personalities have historically had their (negative) opinions weighted far more heavily than they should be. A proper voting mechanism would counteract that. IE: "We have 300 people who said that it should work like X, just because PERLGURU thinks otherwise shouldn't outweigh them."
Renaming 'err' to 'dor'... Ummm.... :-)
