Reordering perlvar
Message ID:
I made a branch for reordering perlvar a bit. This isn't a huge change, 
just some moving variable definitions around to try to group like things 

The biggest change is I made a new "interpreter state variables" section 
that's near the end of the document. I put stuff like $COMPILING and 
${^ENCODING} here. My theory is that this is wizards-only stuff, so 
keeping it separate makes the document more usable.

I'm considering going a little further and just calling this section 
"obscure shit" (ok, something better than that) and moving more stuff 
there. For example, $^F and $^M could probably go in such a section too.

I've made each change as a separate commit, so we can argue about them 

I'd appreciate any feedback people might have on the current changes and 
my proposal above.
