[sf-perl] Do you have a tidy style? Emacs/cperl and perltidy.

I used the .perltidyrc from _Perl Best Practices_. It's pretty good and a reasonable "standard" that most people at least know about. 


You'll get discussion of all kinds about how to tidy your code, but coming up with a set of perltidy rules you can agree on is a huge bonus to a shop. In my old job, we used those perltidy rules as "neutral ground" to start the discussion and ended up sticking with them because, well, they were at least *a* published standard.

(I use Vim, so I can't help with cperl, but I'm sure there's a php mode for it too.)
