Well, sure, but even if you believed that there was no reason to write
what you wrote. So what are you sorry for? You do that in about every mail
that has something to do with perl, in case you didn't realize it.

I think it gets reported here or on gimp-user every few months since at
least 2000. You probably ignored it because there is often perl code
in it, and it's easy to dismiss it as yet another perl problem. It's
basically become a FAQ even.

That's true, and I can fully understand that. What I cannot understand is
why you reflect these problems on perl again and again.
