Given that it was originally by Ilya, who is known for bizarre but mostly
functional code (the Perl regular expression engine, and the Perl debugger
come to mind immediately), I *should* hesitate any confirmation. :-)

However, I'm perfectly happy to give it a go on a time-permitted basis.  And
forgive my ignorance, but is there a bug queue that I should be scanning for
bugs reported against cperl-mode?
