Oh heck, you just had to get into the acronym thing....

    PLEASE -- Perl Language Extensions And Standard Exportables
    SPELL -- Standard Perl Extension Library :)
    LiSP -- Library of Standard Perl :-)
    ALPHA -- Annotated Library of Perl Heuristics and Algorithms
    PASCAL -- Perl Access to Standard Code And Libraries

Must... stop... acronyms... addictive!

Yeah, I like it a lot. There does need to be a "core" vs "standard
library" vs "supported" vs "contributed" vs "unsupported" distinction
(some of those may or may not be the same) though.

I'd respond to the rest, but I think that pretty much sums up my
feelings on the rest of your message too.
