And the winner is...Juho Snellman
Message ID:
And so another perl golf tournament ends.

Juho snellman won ahead of Eugene van der Pijll with a very minimal
distance. While missing a win on the postorder hole, his new discovery
of using the empty regex (goodbye, we'll miss you in perl 6 golf) to defeat 
the normal regex variable scoping rules in a for (and that ?? does not
do it's "only once" job for the empty regex either).

Among the beginners a late but very powerful appearance by Markus Laire 
assured him of the top spot, beating many veterans (mtve among them).

Congratulations to the winners, and enjoy the post-mortem.
