One more thing:

a signature parameter must start with '$', '@' or '%'
a slurpy parameter may not have a default value
illegal character following sigil in a subroutine signature

Most error messages begin with a capital letter.  I think these
should, too.

*This* one is capitalised:

Multiple slurpy parameters not allowed


Too %s arguments for subroutine

It is easier for people to find the error if it is listed twice in
perldiag, under 'Too few' and 'Too many'.  That is why we have
/* diag_listed_as: ... */ comments.

If you want, I can clean these up for you after you merge your branch.
