And I must apologise for using the word "stupid", because it was not.

And I'm sorry if things I wrote seemed to be patronising - this was most
definitely not the intent with which they were written, and they were not
meant to be readable as such.

(I've been grumpy with myself all weekend for this)

I seem to be dogmatically passionate about the Perl 5 core, and the reasons
why I think things should be done roughly the way they are, and sometimes
this gets the better of me. In this instance, meaning that I miss the large
important areas that everyone agrees on.
