With complete respect here, I'm still not convinced this is true.
Specifically, what the value of "we" is. It hardly sounds like
everyone's united on this point. In fact, I've counted more postings of
the tone "Why would we change -> ?!" than the other way around.

Now, it may be that all the "We should use ." people are just keeping
quiet, or think it's obvious why this is a benefit, but I'm unconvinced.
Again, I'm open-minded, but the only argument I've really heard is to
make Perl more Java/Python-like. This doesn't sway me at all. Are there
other reasons?
