That's sounds wonderful. The other day I was actually looking into
what it might take to hack B::Deparse to normalize the variable names.
Then I looked at the code :) (It actually didn't look that hard, but I
haven't tried yet).
I won't have time to return to this problem for a couple of days, but
I'm glad to know there's a path to follow.
