I've done enough with Ruby, and studied the deep end of the object
system enough, to appreciate it.  Though I still prefer Perl.

In any case, I would not describe the current Perl code for the camp
system as an ideal demonstration of Perl.  Not be a longshot.  And
that's very much 80-90% my fault (if not more).  :(
