This is good to know -- thanks++!

Based on the description, it sounds like it may be a while before this sort of facility becomes "normal", to the extent that folks would find transitioning to it to be easier than staying with the older approach.

The situation reminds me of a Larry Wall quote (in the perlunicode mail list, wouldn't you know) -- this was four years ago, but it still resonates:

Perl's always been about providing reasonable defaults, and will continue to do so. But changing what's reasonable is tricky, and sometimes you have to go through a period in which nothing can be considered reasonable.
