Yeah, I'd apply that patch while we all figure out what to do. I'd be happy
to take on the "Perl fixing" work as Perl is my first language love. (Well
C/C++ I learned first, so I guess, my first scripting language love.
Technically, I learned BASIC on a TI/994A first, but the less said about
that the better.)

I'd probably need a branch to start doing that, though. I can't imagine
we'd want to do that on trunk.
