Dave had a presentation at OSCON about this last year (or was it the year before?). It was funny in a frustrating way because he knew it was necessary but such a huge task to undertake at the time. This is one of the things I love about the Perl community (despite its social awkwardness at times): take the hardest problem you can think of and just start chipping away at it (don't worry if others think it's "doable" or not). I guess FOSS is similar, but Perl has a culture that seems to take a chinese-water-torture approach to whittling away the mountain some problems present.

Yay Rolsky!
