That must have been a different meeting from the one where I asked Andy
for the notes, he gave them to me, and I skimmed over them looking for
stuff I hadn't seen before.

A few of the things that caught my eye were:

* wrap filehandles in braces, e.g.:  print {$fh} "blah"x3;
* explicitly use /s in regexps by default
* recommendations to use version.pm & Perl6::Export
