in thread (Completely OT) - Hero(i)n programming language on Slashdot

O.k., my point exactly. How things work under the covers is, to some extent (some great extent, in the case of highly dynamic languages like perl) irrelevant to the users of the language. As far a perl programmers are concerned, 5 and "foo" have different types. perl tells us as much. We really don't care whether perl determines their types by some container tagging system, or whatever other means.
