cperl-mode mis-indents _data_ (as opposed to _code_).

use Class::Struct Foo => [
    a => '$',
    b => '$',
    c => '$',

is indented as

use Class::Struct Foo => [
                          a => '$',
                          b => '$',
                          c => '$',

which is much less readable.
the same goes for

my $foo = [

I understand that this might be a matter of taste, but it would be nice
if my preferred indentation were also available.

PS. I am aware (and not fond) of the alternative

my $foo =
  [ .... ];

You can just add -done to the bug number in the address if you would
like to do it yourself next time.  See the To-field of this message.

It sounds like a good idea to add such an option.

Just a thought: I seem to remember that the PBP recommendations is the
generally accepted style in the Perl community these days?  Does it make
sense to change that to be the default?  (It's been over 10 years since
I did any serious Perl programming...)
