If you would, please pick a different language (say, REBOL or Lisp ;) )
for your example. I (and many others) regularly write *much* more than
'some isolated (Perl) scripts to do some transformation here and there' on
a regular basis. I've personally written hundreds of thousands of lines of
mostly object oriented Perl in the last three years.

Thank you.
