"use strict" goes a long way to changing DWIM to DWIS, but strings can
still be integers and vice-versa.

Tragically, the strict pragma is not used in the great majority of
CPAN modules. I would say that the majority of *good* CPAN modules do
use it, however.

But I don't think you owe us a retraction. ;)
