in thread Perl 11

I'd rather want to see the points raised therein disproved.

Which ones? "p5p are ignorant and incompetent and have been destroying Perl since 2000" isn't a point that can be proven or disproven. On a similar-but-not-the-same note, "Allowing nulls in symbol names in Perl is a security hole, no one is smart enough to see it, take my word for it, I won't show you any working exploit code" isn't a point that can be discussed.

    Which points do you see suitable for discussion?

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

      I think there's a lot of potential around improving Unicode implementation and properties, adopting perfect hashing in places (and alternate, non-linked-list hash implementations for small hashes with known sizes), and finding a better concurrency mechanism.
