    It would appear that "Simple pretty format that works reliably now, but has long term problems" is trumping "Theoretically more correct and more future proof but buggy in the wild in the present"...

    With, of course, "reliably works everywhere" MILES ahead.

    • There does seem to be a fad/fashion for "simple pretty formats" (i.e. DSLs) lately. M::B's OO framework is just ugly for what should be simple and boilerplate most of the time. (Maybe I should write M::B::Declare...)

      I'd like M::I more if I could understand how/when/where things happen without taking hours to unravel it. ETOOMUCHMAGIC for me.

      I also think the "buggy in the wild" will decrease with time as older perls are replaced with newer ones.
