  • I get the sense that many people have given up on the core being useful beyond small projects. Certainly Perl 5 hasn't found the optimal solution to code reuse.

    • Re: core, this is the same-old same-old.

      There's talk of adding a method keyword and parameters. That's good.

      But what seems to be happening, and what always seems to happen in Perl land, is that it happens in a module, it percolates a long time, then just enough is added to core that the module can function well. Whether something like Moose winds up in core doesn't matter as long as perl itself can reasonably accommodate it.

      This is good laziness -- how little do the perl 5 porters have to do and risk breaking, essentially.

      So even though Moose is currently pissing me off and the garishness of it scares me, I think it's all part of this larger push in the right direction.
