Create a perl configuration file.  A few standard configurations could be
in the standard distibution. Non standard configurations would have to be
distributed with the program.

Make the program state the name of the perl configuration, if it's not the
standard base configuration:

use 6.0 qw( :long_uri_style_special_name_of_the_configuration MORE_OPTIONS );
