There is absolutely a way to get all the keywords you want onto a resume for the Perl engine and also be honest to a human reader

You could have a section at the end of the resume labeled "keywords" and then put categories in for you proficiency level: guru keywords, master keywords, apprentice keywords and newbie keywords. or any other such arrangement.

I have spent years as a hiring manager and I would be quite impressed if such completeness and honesty showed on a resume.

i will go you one further and say that the more open style of braces would have shown the bug quite clearly
if ((err = SSLHashSHA1.update( &hashCtx, &signedParams)) != 0)
{
   goto fail;
   goto fail;
   if ((err = SSLHashSHA1.final( &hashCtx, &hashOut)) != 0)
   {
      goto fail;
   }
}
// if you always put a brace on the line after the evaluation of an if, and tab in, the nesting will be obvious.

that is getting sick of this content-free, slashdot echo chamber, clickcrack stuff. Hey Slashdot, why do you need whole nuther site to post original articles? And why do those articles make such a deafening sucking sound?
Problem is that I would be interested in a reasoned look at MongoDB v Dynamo but my experience with http://slashdot.org/topic/bi/ is not to waste my time by reading TFA.

Sentient plasmoids are a gas.
