    Side note: the base note did NOT propose a sigil-less perl. 
    Since any requirement that sigils not be used would prevent
    existing perl programs from being used.

I would probably question my understanding before responding to such
a proposal.

However, regarding the Ratfor model (a full C++ 1.0 compiler that
produced Fortran code), I don't think it would be doable in
Perl, since perl doesn't have separate compile & execution
phases.  An Opsig perl would need to have all the information
determined at compile also available at runtime. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
