Who cares anyway?
Managers who are selecting technologies care.

People who make their living selling corporate america the idea that Perl is a strong architecture choice care.

So, yes, it matters to me. When the discussion of "Perl vs $other_tech" comes up, and the discussion quickly (and I mean very quickly) devolves to "Oh, Perl is unreadable", and they point to JAPHs and Golf because that's google-able, my heart saddens a bit. Even if we've lost the battle for entirely the wrong reasons, we still lost.
