( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Ha ha, after reading this from your Ship of Theseus link:

The ship of Theseus, also known as Theseus' paradox, is a thought experiment that raises the question of whether an object that has had all of its components replaced remains fundamentally the same object.
I just realised that the well-read Larry was probably aware of this philosophical teaser when he wrote:
Seriously, what makes Perl Perl? If someone decides I'm ugly and beats my face to a pulp, and later I get a face transplant, am I still me? If my bones rot and are replaced with synthetics, at what point am I a different person? Syntax is just skin. Semantics are just bones. Neither is the soul of Perl, which rests in the realm of pragmatics.
