, 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...
