  • I guess I'll have to vote for interesting, I learn a couple of things:

    • using Devel::Peek to get the refcount of variables,
    • that weaken is included in Scalar::Util, I always used it from WeakRef, is there a difference in the 2 versions BTW?

    The final "let's wrap it all up in one nice package that works with all versions of Perl" is very cool too.

  • Though I haven't got a clue what "true Blue Peter fashion" means.
    • In the UK we have a kids educational TV magazine show called Blue Peter (no idea if it still runs or not, but it had been running for over 30 years when I was a kid). They would do both crafts and cooking, and half way through to save time they would magically pull out from under the table a finished version, saying: "And here's one we made earlier".

      Hence my hand-waving, and the saying.
