(On my long list of to-do-someday projects is to get all the old p5p posts
from xray and format them for Ask to import into nntp.perl.org as
perl.perl5.porters.old, then try to persuade google groups into archiving
them.  If anyone else wants to work on this, Ask wanted the messages
broken up into one message per file.)
