Thanks.  I was going to suggest s/paren_list/parenlist/ for symmetry
with qwlist and because munge is both imprecise and derogatory, but I
don't have a strong preference.

FWIW, automated name shortening is available on VMS as a compiler
switch, but using it will require changes to xsubpp, which has its own
home-grown name shortening.  Shouldn't be that big a deal to do, but
neither are most of the other hundred things ahead of it on my to-do
