Thanks, I was wondering where I put that note.
I was thinking about adding minimal perltidy support like that to the
next version of perlnow.el... but if there's a perltidy minor mode
maybe it's not needed.

Which in emacs is essentially just
without any setup needed.
Myself, I've never gotten into using that, though... I'm more inclinced to
use the emacs "registers" a lot. Any long identifier I expect to need to
re-use, I stash in a register. For example, to save the region to register
"1", you do a "C-x r s 1" and to insert it somewhere else you do a " C-x r i
1" (though myself, I keep the "insert" key bound to "insert-register" because
it's not good for much else).

Ah, I think I see... you seed the autocomplete system with a list of words
you expect to be using. Otherwise I guess it just uses the current buffer
as a source of completions.
