I pretty much agree with this. When I can get away with it performance-wise (and I almost always can for personal projects), this is a big part of why I love using Perl 6.

I recently rolled my own (verg tiny and specific) build/deployment system for a project. Initial prototyping was a breeze, but once I had things more or less nailed down, I started adding types and, for example, was able to leverage the type system to make sure it can only be deployed listening on IP addresses in the private range. The next step is to rig up some sort of Zerotier integration to ensure I only make it available on my private networks.
