As someone who came to Ruby from Perl, I also use/like the flip-flop
operator.

Having said that, maybe a better question than "Who likes the feature?" or
"Who doesn't?" is "What's bad enough about flip-flop that merits removal?"
Does it cause some performance problem or lead to wrongheaded programming?
(Not rhetorical: I genuinely don't see what would make it worth removing.)

Thanks, Peter
