[PATCH] detab and move POD in Pod/
Message ID:

I hate tabs, and I hate having to scroll past mounds of POD before 
getting to the meat of the module.

The attached tarball contains two patches. The first one is a 
whitespace-change-only, that translates tab chars to 8 spaces (and too 
bad if this messes up aligned comments, that can be cleaned up afterwards).

The second patch moves the POD to the end of the file. No other code 
changes are made. It will make life easier if this could be integrated 
now, otherwise the first code change I deliver will be monstrous.

The only things I am planning for the moment are reporting errors by 
line number rather than paragraph number, honouring =encoding and 
decrufterising the code a bit, which uses a bazillion global variables.
