By the way, this is not true. Apache (with the default configuration) is a 
bit deceptive, because runtime warnings are buried in the error log where 
nobody really reads them. Run Bugzilla on IIS (which redirects standard 
error stream into the standard output) for a while, and you'll notice how 
many warnings a completely functional Bugzilla installation can emit :-)

I'm not saying that the current tip creates warnings, though; our cvs 
checkout from December does, but at least some of those were already fixed 
before I could file bugs on them.

This is true, but I agree with bbaetz that understanding quotation and 
basics like q{} is equally important. What makes me want to minimize the 
use of "" is the ease of _accidentally_ typing something like '$a = 
"abc at def.example"' and not noticing it.

Other than that, I have no opinion on this.
