I really appreciate the sentiment behind this ticket.  However, it's
formulated without specific criteria for closing the ticket.  In other
words, how will we know when we have sufficiently improved
pod/perltrap.pod such that this ticket could be closed.

Would it be better if we created separate RT tickets for each language
that needed some cleanup, with pointers to specific things that need
cleaning up?

Thank you very much.
