Attached to: Matt Trout, aka mst, is insane

The message was delivered years ago, and it hasn't changed since. And you managed to spout more than enough stupid shit just in the short time you were back today. I was about ready to ban you myself when you started "singing", but I guess I'm just not as decisive as mst.

that cpanm is well beyond the "99%" level if installing things is a metric. Not that it is -- any connection between "99% solution" and "install succcess rate" was invented entirely by you.

A bit belated but I just wanted to say I appreciate the reply. I know it's just a peeve of mine, but I felt like airing it. And I do hope that the plan is at least to address this by "spring". s/// is just too much "basic idiomatic perl", and if you don't have it it will be your "word count". :)

I know that the people working on Rakudo are all smart folks, and not lazy either, so there must be something thoroughly difficult about implementing s///. But, not knowing anything about Rakudo's internals I can't for the life of me imagine what the hangup is. Anyone want to venture an explanation?

  Comment: The important thing here (Score 1) on 2009.09.03 15:12

is that it doesn't really matter what you think. A considerable portion of the rest of the world will end up using Moose irrespective of your opinion of it. Will you accept it in your dependencies and spend your time working on something useful, or you dedicate the remainder of your life to shaving Yak::Tiny?
