If someone's company is doing C/C++ development they might get
licenses for FlexeLint (or its Windows version) and in addition
to analysing their own product they might do a lot of good by
similarly analysing Perl and other open source projects.  (Assuming
Gimpel's license terms aren't idiotic enough to prohibit this...)
Just an idea...

(Then there's of course Coverity, but Perl is already using that.)
