The assumption I remember from the design meetings was always "No library 
designer has the knowledge or the right to tell me how fast or strict my 
program has to run."  Whatever B&D you do in the privacy of your own modules 
is fine, but if it leaks out past encapsulation boundaries, expect that 
somewhere you might offend community standards.

In my opinion,Perl 6 should spell "no bondage":
