Thanks for posting the summary.  I appreciate that maintainability
was of concern.  In fact it appears that going from 5.005_02 to 5.8.7
we have lost many characters:

$ perl "-MConfig" -e "print $],' ',length($Config{'sig_name_init'})"
5.00502 272
$ perl_setup 587
Testing version 5.8.7  of Perl
%DCL-I-SUPERSEDE, previous value of PERLSHR has been superseded
$ perl "-MConfig" -e "print $],' ',length($Config{'sig_name_init'})"
5.008007 126

That should easily be writable on VMS V 5.5-2 I'd think.
