No. Look at \'anick for example (poor \'anick :)

I had once toyed with roman numbers for a local perlgolf, and remembered
that there were already some solutions out there, which I quickly found
via google.

I feel stupid for not realizing that the s/\w+/${$&}/ was optimizable.
But then, I only had half a day to spend on the golf.

Thanks for the game!

It is easy to be blinded to the essential uselessness of computers by
the sense of accomplishment you get from getting them to run at all.
