in thread use strict

Oh, and if you're so saffy you're writing "modern Perl", you'll be able to write an editor macro that puts "use strict;" in your files for you?

A pragma here, a pragma there and soon you have a wall of pragmas to make this "practical" language do the right thing.

    Stepping aside the issue of backwards compatability, even if 5.xx is going to enable a "wall of pragmas" by default, who's going to decide which set of pragmas that will be?

      The same people who decide what use 5.xx.xx; mean.
