there is a problem with analgies, though - people draw conclusions from
them.  for instance, "to cloister" means to exclude the world (or seclude
oneself). this is definately not how Perl 6 should be perceived if we
truly want a larger community to feel welcome. 

remember, perception is most of it, no matter what Truth really is. :)
