Oh well, neither is "note". Someone must have

Everyone does at one time :) It's really useful for debugging, but you

I saw a business study somewhere (I don't remember where)
that determined that the notes folks doodle into the margins on
working papers are often time more useful than the papers
themselves. One wonders how much of this happens in Perl!
Perl 6 is an awesome example of Kaisen (constant improvement)
in action. It is something to behold. I wish other projects
were 1/10 as responsive! I will even take 1/20!
