I'd rather that such a change be installed in Ilya's upstream
version first. We already have plenty of merge problems because of
patches he rejected. BTW, the recent change to use define-derived-mode
introduced a problem where the cperl-mode-hook gets called twice, so
I think we had better revert it.
