I saw that. I guess I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue.

So do I add "Amores" to the "Cor/Corinna/Perl7" bucket or it, like,
a new thing?

Can't it just be a normal titled pre-RFC? Or are we all expected to
now add some weird codename reference to proposals that should just
otherwise we titled what they are?

Oh, here we go WP to the rescue:

    Amores is Ovid's first completed book
    of poetry, written in elegiac couplets.
    It was first published in 16 BC in five
    books, but Ovid, by his own account,
    later edited it down into the three-book
    edition that survives today

Okay now we're on to somthing. Still doesn't explain how this relates
to some strategic plan to zip up both trad Perl and POOP into one
harmonious poop utopia. Care to explain what the overall play is here?
This may also hopefully help explain to me what "non-OOP" C<module> is
going to actually do for the regular perl stiff.
