All this recent talk of a Bugs Manifesto is a ruse! They're trying to fool us. There's a far more sinister force at work here, the cause of the increasing references to arguments appearing in the synopses. As the Internet knows Klingon function calls do not have "parameters" - they have "arguments"- and they ALWAYS WIN THEM . Expect the next changes to Perl 6 to involve moving the keywords to the ends of the statements.
