Its interesting to me to reclassify language schisms slash internal wars in this context. The C programmers(masochists) vs the C++99 programmers(Obsessives) vs C++11 programmers(Obssessives who want to move to Hysterical). The Raku vs Perl split as a move toward sociopathic behavior. The resistance in go to generics as an aversion of the masochistic to the hysterical. Its super fun.

I view the Raku vs. Perl split as schizophrenic conflict resolution.

Private equity has been making millions selling the parts of a company for more money than the whole. I don't see how that split is any different.
