Context: Re^2: CoróAn object system for the Perl core

# "new developers" not defined in $poll_inspiration my $new_developers = 'both rookie developers and "real developers" not using Perl'; our $goal = 'offer something compelling to ' . $new_developers; sub what_to_do { my $module = 'Best::OO::Implementation::Ever'; # Perl 5 module if( exists($reality{$module}) && meets_goal($goal, $module) ) { return $foo; } }

What is the value of $foo if we call what_to_do()?

  • Add $module to the core Perl language in a future v5 release

  • Add $module to the core Perl distribution in a future v5 release

  • Add $module to the core Perl language in a future major version release

  • Add $module to the core language of a forked Perl distribution

  • Publish $module to CPAN and see what happens

  • Publish $module to CPAN and see what happens; meanwhile add one of the currently most-widely used OO packages to the core Perl distribution in a future v5 release, to get closer to $goal

  • Other (please describe below)

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
