How many Perl 5 Porters does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Will you
leave the verb "transliterate" alone? Here are the facts about it:

1. It is the proper technical term.

2. Its meaning in English is not identical to its technical meaning.

3. Plus, not everybody are familiar with the English word, to begin

Now, I say that these items warrant a short explanation that explains what
it means. I don't want to avoid it. We should never avoid the proper
terms. But we should also explain them.
