I sometimes pronounce "foreach" when I see "ef oh ar" in Perl
programs, but I do not do that aloud around other people.

My point was that things like this:

>>   print H "$_\0" for @deletedfiles;

is perfectly fine among Perl people (and I would probably even
encourage rewriting git-*.perl scripts in more Perlish style if
the project were about an SCM primarily targetted for Perl
people --- it is not), but look obfuscated without merit to
people who do not talk Perl.
