Perl has the same situation with Larry[1] and Perl6...

You do that and I'm forking! I swear it! I've already got a mirror
here; don't make me use it!!! ;-)

Besides, can you normally "elect" a dictator? We really need someone to
seize the reins of power though a coup. Yeah, that's the ticket...


1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Wall

1. Larry is always by definition right about how Perl should behave.
This means he has final veto power on the core functionality.

2. Larry is allowed to change his mind about any matter at a later date,
regardless of whether he previously invoked Rule 1.

Got that? Larry is always right, even when he was wrong.
