Yip, i want to discuss the line down the middle between the IDE and
the Language/Engine. The original post meant to state that the only way
Perl could leap forward in a way that would shock/surprise people would
be to significantly change the way people worked with the language.

Object orientation was one such shift, Visual Basic/Delphi was another
such shift (and i'm not just talking about the GUI builder bit). In
fact high level languages with text editors is another.
