Now trying to put this in place I'm confused as hell.  Shouldn't this be

	$SignUpInfo{keys %tmp} = values %tmp;

I know perl usually does the right thing with what it's handed but I 
really don't understand the @something{} verses the $something{} here.
Do the curly braces over-ride(?) the at-symbol?
