Apologies to this author. I didn't know he was a she, and I mean no
offense at my guess at what group was politically incorrect. It just
looked like Dan had seen the link and missed a bit later on.

Of course realizing that documentation is good no matter where it comes
from, I think we need to scour around on the inside as much as possible
before looking to "outsource". Perl writing has a sort of unique humor
(and odd linguistics "perlisms"), which has helped to form and identify
the culture. I think it would be a shame to lose that if we pawn off too
much onto people not "into" the culture.

I won't discount her suggestion though. Any documentation is good
documentation, especially on behalf of programmers.
