I think it could work without the admission requirement --
just let people self-admit. That way you'll get mostly
people who are really interested and/or capable in one or
more advanced areas of Perl without the impossible job and
time sink of trying to decide what constitutes "advanced"
for everyone. Yeah, there'll be a few undesirables,
hangers-on and deadweights, but that's a small price to pay
for the overall simplification and possible benefit. You
never know, that person that no one thought should be
admitted may turn out to be one of the most valuable of all.
Not uncommon in situations where humans have to "judge"
