I should have remembered this the other night. =begin and =end mark stuff to be 
parsed by some other external parser. =pod and =cut start and stop Perl code 
parsing. The docs in modules start with =head1 and end with =cut. The pod doc says 
to use =pod and =cut to add additional paragraphs to the code.
