I am sure that this will be thorougly thought out before the official
of v1.6.

Why would you possibly want to offend someone, whoever they are, with a
attacking statement?

Why does it matter WHO gives the answers as long as the answer is well
thought out and
correct? I for one am hoping that Guido is working hard on the 1.6 release.
Mr. Lundh has
always actively participated in this newsgroup and I appreciate his time for
doing so.

I wonder if someone in the perl group ever said "Larry Wall the god" to make
anyone upset? If so, then Guido stands in good company.
