I can think of an English phrase that sums up what I think of that statement 
in one word, but I'll refrein from using it in polite company.

You've dug such a big hole for yourself your suggestion is never going to 
get off the ground.  Rewriting the perl docs for one person's benefit (you 
friend) is never going to happen - get over it.  I suggest you cease banging 
on about this topic - it has become very tedious.
