in reply to Modules to reduce syntax?

In case you're interested in significant historical relics, note that Semi::Semicolons qualifies, as one of the earliest CPAN joke modules ever released, so early in fact that it was released before the CPAN Acme namespace was created in 2001 to protect developers from naively deploying CPAN joke modules in production systems (though it still happens occasionally). Acme::Bleach, as the first module in the Acme namespace, also qualifies.

Update: Sadly, the primary author of Semi::Semicolons, David H Adler Esq, passed away recently -- its other authors are listed here.
