I remember Piers as a commanding presence, physically and

Paris in 2003.
The point where I would quarrel with him is when he cites some
unnamed other source as characterizing Perl 5.10.0 as a 'testing'
release. I never heard anyone describe it like that. Quite to the
contrary, I just did an upgrade to Ubuntu 8.10 last week, and I was
pleasantly surprised to see that their default Perl was 5.10. I
doubt that they would have included 5.10 in the distro if they felt
it was still a 'testing' release.
