The way I see the word used it means something like “blasé after too
much experience”, someone who remains detached because he’s seen it
all and was disillusioned. Implied by that is a sense of significant
experience, hence my comment.

The man’s or the lady’s disillusionment, obviously, would stem from the
language. :-)  (And let it be said here: I like the language. I enjoy
it in spite of some bizarre design choices in very everyday parts of the
language. Maybe it is I who is a jaded then… sometimes, at least.)

But yes, too negative for a perldoc.
