Don't see it as losing three men, but as sending three ambassadors on a long-term under-cover missionary mission. :-)

Did you try using use 'CGI qw/ :utf8 /;'? That seems to work the way you want with CGI 3.49 (at least it seems to on my box).

There are a few reasons I can imagine, and several I'm fairly sure I'm too afraid to consider. :-)

One reason would be because one wants to explicitly set the 'reader' and the 'writer'.

has babelfish => (
    writer => 'schrieb_fish',
    reader => 'lit_fish',
);

But that doesn't explain why there is no warning if there is no reader/writer assigned at all. But that could happen because one want to create those sometime during runtime. Wacky, but I can imagine a few motivations to do that.

Or it could be that the attribute is used for a trait that does stuff not requiring the class to set/access its value (I can't think of a concrete example, but I'm sure one could think of one, provided with enough chemical stimulants):

    # we don't know who they are,
    # or what they do, but they do
    # control this class, somehow...
has illuminati => (
    traits => [ qw/ Secret::Organization / ],
);

For the last couple of months, as a concession between visibility and control, I'd been double-posting my blog entries both here and on my personal blog. But now that my blog is registered on both the Perlsphere and IronMan aggregators, the need for the second posts here has dwindled. So... I'm going on a limb and tentatively turn off the echoing. See y'all on Ha

I think we'll be adopting that as a name for the contestants

This is exceedingly cool. :-)

Beware, World, for the Iron Mongers are about to descent upon you!

... well, okay, according to the rules, it's going to be the Paper Mongers. But just wait for in a few months...

Yes, but consider...

- who always has the most awesomest lairs located in the most gorgeous locations? (I mean, Syndrome had a tropical island -- with volcano! to himself. What goes Superman has? A shed in the Arctic!)

- who seems to be prone to collect prestigious titles like 'Baron', 'Count' and 'Prince'? (did Machiavelli wrote his book in honor of a do-gooder? I think not)

- who more often than not are filthy rich, throw parties left and right and indulge in every entertaining sins know to mankind? (okay, there are exceptions like Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne, but most heros end up being paperboys struggling to make ends meet)

- who are permitted, nay, expected, to have exotic pets and feed them a minion or two every week?

With all of that in mind, is joining the Evil League of Evilness such a bad move from our part? :-)

You have a good point there.

And, for what it's worth, I find 'Iron Monger' fairly catchy.

Last month, thanks to a concerted effort of German Perl Mongers[1] I was able to meet with the wonderful folks of Ruhr.pm.

It turns out that not only the Ruhr-area mongers are a superlatively friendly bunch, but they have pretty cool presentations too.

Yup, it was inspired by your script all right. :-)

And I guess that while we're talking importing stuff to Github, we should probably also mention brian d foy's github_creator, for completeness' sake.
