It seems like there are two basic attitudes here:
Perl (and others): I love writing code! I'm having a great time! Damn
the torpedoes, full speed ahead!
Scheme (and others): This code is a mess! I can't write ten lines
without introducing bugs! I need help!
... and I think that arguing between these camps about the proper role
of checking and fully-specified semantics is probably a waste of time.
