It's a meditation about using Perl as (partial) DSL for Ruby.
Again, the benefit of a shorter syntax is better understandable within a Ruby context, where passing callbacks is integral part of the language.
Mastering this technique in Perl takes much longer because a beginner has to understand prototypes and coderefs.¹ Furthermore it's inconsistent in Perl because you can't use prototypes on methods.
