Subject: Use weaken to avoid ->delete()?

I think the necessity to cleanup a HTML tree with ->delete() could be discarded if weak references are used, e.g. by using Scalar::Util::weaken. Regards, Slaven

Several distributions are being distributed without weaken support - Red Hat, for example, installs the pure-perl Scalar::Util which doesn't have weaken. Since I'm loathe to force another dependency on distributions (and distribution maintainers), I'm marking this bug as REJECTED as I'm not willing to implement weaken support. Look at Task::Weaken for more information about my rationale behind this choice.
