I really don't understand this argument at all. If anyone could lay a
claim to perl.com, it's Larry himself (and I really don't see him doing
that). But I don't understand why you think that TPF has a better claim
to it than Tom. Perhaps you're assuming that TPF has a level of
"officiality" (is that the right word?) that it doesn't have and (as far
as I know) doesn't aspire to.
Both Tom and O'Reilly have been very good for Perl. Without them I don'
think that we'd be here having this conversation. If they make some
money off the back of it, then I have no objections to that.
