Of course then we'd then need a list of companies that used to use Perl 
or would have used Perl but were put off by the perception that they'd be 
strong-armed into showing support for a community or culture when all 
they wanted was a tool to do a job.

I'm mostly joking, but it does sound like one of those things that someone 
could get huffy about, simply because they didn't get asked.


ps: I would check with the company I currently work for, but I'm only 
working for them for another 9 days.
