correct, and I remember reading this - maybe on PM.

Still, I have another habits in typing perl versus Perl, namely - I rarely
type Perl, because I visually like "perl" more.

Maybe someone will sue me for incorrect usage,. and will gain some 0.02c
or even more, but until that I am still stuck with my habit, and will be
more happy if such changed are minimized.

Just my 0.02c :)
