I love the fact that Perl fans always mention regexes but never mention the fact that in a subroutine you have to unpack your own parameters with the really so blindingly obvious '@_' .

Now I don't know about you but most of the things I write in Python are pretty damn big and regexes are a very small part compared to say *all the functions*

So can I live with slightly more complex regex *syntax* in return for the rest of the language having a syntax I don't need to think about?

(and yes there are perl dudes who know this stuff inside out - but *why* would a newcomer scale these ridiculous barriers to entry?)
