As someone else pointed out, you are correct.  However, that's not exactly
what I was thinking with that analogy.  If Perl 6 is 4'33" that would be
most unfortunate.

Actually, I was thinking of the difference between "there is one way"
(Python & Babbitt's serialism (side note: Babbitt is a _really_ nice guy
and not a crazy fascist though I can't stand his music)) and TMTOWTDI
(John Cage for sure).
