I get your point, and realize I'm belaboring a conversation that  
should come to an end, but--

The "readability" argument is subjective.  Personally, I find the  
array literal syntax more readable. Really. I understand it without  
having to know Perl, Ruby, etc.  I get that $w() might be more  
readable to others ... just not to me.  =)

Yeah, speed is negligible. It might be worth fixing in well-tested/ 
rarely-changed code (if only to stop the questions--this has come up  
before), but you're right: any gains would be tiny.

My unsolicited two cents.
