erudil, well done!

This set me thinking about the Monastery, the 'heirarchy' tied (no pun intended - well, maybe not) to the gradients of canonization <initiate .. saint> here at PerlMonks, and led me to the thought of Perl certification. :)

(I know, wars have started over lesser controversies.)

Should there ever be a recognized, respectable source of such certification (a seminary?), should it:

  • Certify in gradients based on tested levels of expertise, and call each level by PM's ecclesiastical titles?
  • Have the issued certificates presided over by a Bishop with full authority to issue, restest and revoke?
  • Have a board responsible for standardizing levels of expertise (the catechism), mandating recertification timing, etc? (college of cardinals?)
  • Hmmm. Would we ever end up with our own Knights Templar? lol
  • and just maybe, the powers-that-be might get us a better calendar...

What have I missed?

But we need to stay away from that Celibacy concept...
