If using  ->params->{name} (i.e. the direct hash approach) is like
juggling grenades - then what is like using the ->param( 'name' ) way
of doing it?
I am asking this because your grenades analogy gives the impression
that you you are against doing direct hash access for every price -
but I think the general advice is that in this particular case using
the ->param( 'name' ) is worse than using the direct hash access.
