Please can you explain the reasoning for choosing antecedent, rather
than successor?

I'm not disagreeing with your choice, merely that it doesn't seem
obvious to me that one is going to work better than t'other, so I'm open
to being persuaded.

In Perl 5 I generally intermingle Pod, such that when reading the source
the description of a function or method comes before the code (so that
by the time you've reached the code you already know what it's supposed
to be doing) -- but I'm not adamant about continuing with this style.
