yeah, but having 10 ways to do stuff isn't always a good idea.

And sometimes it is. ...

I'd agree with Ross here, I don't think it's a good idea to be
maintaining too many ways to access the same info. ...

i think the line is "would you rather have ten equally broken ways to do it,
or two reasonable ways?"

And Ross agrees with Larry, which I'm sure his "(heh)" was meant to imply:

        "Although the Perl Slogan is There's More Than One Way to Do It,
         I hesitate to make 10 ways to do something. :-)"

That said, Aristotle's proposal looks good to me. My only concern is that
it prevents us from adding any more features to the tied interface, since
there are only two available fields: values (at index 0) and children (all
the other indices). I can't see this being a real problem, though.
