In chromatic's latest "Perl 6 Design Minutes" post
(http://use.perl.org/~chromatic/journal/38334), he writes
"Missing a discussion on.trim and gilding the lily."
* if I wanted PHP I know where to find it
So there's a lot of context missing there and I'm unsure of what this implies,
but if it's deemed that .trim and friends are too much, so be it. I would
submit that .chop is also a great candidate for removal (.chop? Why is it even
Is there guidance on where to go from here or what the balance is between
convenience functions and the bare minimum?
