:Lack of pollution strikes again.    We're going to see a lot of these.
:Lots and lots and lots and lots, clogging up perlbug and c.l.p.* .
:At least in the short term, we need more pollution.   And here's a
:half baked idea about how we might achieve it.
:MakeMaker should look at the date of the module. (What's the 'date'
:of a module?   That's one of the ways in which this idea is half-baked.)

Could we not simply grep *.[ch] for the names? It'd be a bit slow, I
guess, so a DWIS flag might be useful to suppress it.
