That's a crazy suggestion. I mean, how many books say "Perl is a language
for getting your job done" ?

People might forget about Perl for Perl's sake and be inspired to actually
start doing things for the fun of it, merely using Perl because it was the
best tool for the job, rather than the obviously only acceptable tool.
