Fair enough. I suppose the fact that this particular bug has been around
for so long and only recently did somebody run into it, is proof that
perhaps it's a very rarely encountered case, so probably doesn't warrant
urgent treatment.


English is useful because it is a mess. Since English is a mess, it maps
well onto the problem space, which is also a mess, which we call
reality. Similarly, Perl was designed to be a mess, though in the
nicests of all possible ways. -- Larry Wall
