Not documentation?

Can't Tom and Ilya agree to disagree?  Can't Ilya be ignored when it's
worth ignoring?  Why does Tom spend so much time and energy putting down
the irrational or hasty thoughts and ideas of others, when we can all
judge for ourselves what's good and what's crud?  Is Perl 100%
deterministic as Ilya seems to think all real programming languages are?
Nah, but who the hell cares?  Oh, I guess "real programmers".  I'm happy
not to be a "real programmer" then, or I guess only a "real programmer"
when I program in C.  And of course, Tom cares, because after all, Ilya
said something out loud.
