You shouldn't use & when calling subroutines, see perlsub for reasons why.
A quick read of perlsub doesn't show what you might mean, and IMO there is no problem with consistently using & and parentheses.

    With parentheses it's fine, as long as you're not using prototypes. Without the parentheses it could cause a problem.
