in thread Regarding STDOUT and indirect object notation for print

Well that's a major exaggeration. The cost of loading IO::Handle would be quite small if it was rewritten in C. (100 bytes?) In fact, there already exists modules whose methods are built right into Perl: utf8, version and UNIVERSAL, for example.

    It is an exaggeration, but there was clearly a design decision to keep perl lean and mean. Just trying to make a point succinctly, and histrionics seemed an easy way to do it.

    It does seems odd to me that they'd include the implicit blessing without populating the namespace. I suppose it's a nod to the roll-your-own option.
