He's not involved in DBIx::Class :)

Though I insult that regularly, and we both do the same to Catalyst. The
thing is we tend to do that around people who're likely to help us fix
whatever's currently making them insult-worthy, which isn't really this
list. On here, we insult things that are currently being discussed that are
worthy of such :)

Neither of us are really 'perl 6 people' - in fact, I think we're both
suqurely in the sceptic camp, myself more so than John. But the people
saying against weren't constructing sensible arguments so we poked holes
in them (you'll notice there were plenty of 'against' people who -did- that
we ignored ...)
