There's a lot more to making a good programmer than knowing the language,
just like being a spelling bee doesn't make you a good novelist.

When I'm looking for a good Perl programmer, whether the candidate knows
Perl or not doesn't matter much (of course, if the candidate claims to 
know Perl, (s)he better shows (s)he knows the language); for a good 
programmer, learning a new language should not be a problem.
