in thread keywords versus variables

I think perhaps it's balanced against other issues, though, and shouldn't necessarily be a singular goal.
Oh, definitely. It's a bit of a silly "metric", of course. My point about the complex data structures was that, if you have to do
$blah->{something}->{and_deeper}->[12]
you'll be pretty bug prone and so you might consider refactoring into something like
$deeper->item(12)
...which is why I put method calls on one lower level of egregiousness :)
