in reply to Perl Certification revisited

I think cosmicperl's point is that the people who make these decisions (ie have their hands on the money) are fairly conservative and feel happier/more convinced if a Cert is offered.
If we did it, we'd want someone senior eg Larry to specifically bless the companies/courses (to ensure high stds) and a percentage of income to go to the Perl community somehow.
Whether or not we like the idea isn't strictly the qn being posed, it's dealing with/convincing potential clients...
