I posted this about 18 months ago but then ran out of steam. In the
meantime, some people have been going around doing various Perl code
cleanups in parts of the code, so it seems it makes sense to proceed
with this. We use "use strict" everywhere now, so some of the original
patch has gone away. Here is an updated patch. The testing
instructions below still apply. Especially welcome would be ideas on
how to address some of the places I have marked with ## no critic.
