"We are all aware that there are 4 parties here:"

Hi Tux, with respect, you left out the group that includes me and most Perl programmers I know here and elsewhere:

If the butterfly people really loved Perl as they say, a long time ago they would have picked their own name and gone their own way and allowed Perl to flourish unencumbered, and we wouldn't be having the discussion (still) and there would be no need for you to be appalled.


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
