so you're saying The Rock looks shocked because the passenger is using
neolithic instead of jet age tools, not because he thinks she's
talking about drug use?

What does Dave Rolsky get out of his project?

And why does it need to *replace the existing docs in core* instead of
*appear as an additional reference link* ? I'm pretty sure there are
already places in the core docs where it says, as it were, "Using
rocks is clumsy but works -- you can download a more comfortable
hammer here."

There was a wickedly long thread on p5p just recently:


which started with "why not just tell them to use
Moose/Class::Accessor/et al" which got immediately countered with "we
can't document something that isn't in core".

Which is a lot like saying "you should build a house with a hammer,
but here we will tell you how to do it by banging rocks together,
because we only ship rocks with Perl".
