Yes, the refactorings are all as rote as I could make them and only lightly
touch the code enough to make the canonicalization possible... with a bit more
work than was strictly necessary around the Perl build system.

Let me do a bit of rebase work to make things work better as a series of
submissions and I'll get back to you.

I'm new here, and I'll play nice, but let me go on record to state that Git
asking for individual emails with inline patches feels like Sendmail Corp
asking to be faxed an email thread.  I was kinda hoping SubmittingPatches
wasn't serious about that and it was some sort of policy artifact that was
never updated. :-/
