in thread Dots and cargo-cult programming

As I said, I really don't care one way or the other what Perl6 does, though I'd rather see a syntax that would be less confusing (and some of the changes in Perl6 will help there).

I suspect that I'll have trouble with confusing ~= and =~ (especially because Smalltalk uses ~= for "not equal"). If I'm still using Perl by the time Perl6 comes out.

I just thought it was curious that people thought that the copy/paste thing was important enough that they'd let it influence language syntax.
