Good heavens, no! I only wanted to express that there is a practical
limit. Perl did get its "line noise" reputation for a reason after all. I
feel that production quality Perl should be readable by other Perl
graduates (think of it like a bachelor's degree, it means someone knows
enough about Perl to get by without being told what to do). PhD Perl
should be (p)reserved as art (I'm excluding abstractions of good quality,
of course, as that's the whole point to them).
I would encourage an explicit FlipFlop class in any large production.
(Reduced to native or builtin structures in response to optimizations
where needed, natch.)
Give me TMTOWTDI or give me death.
