in thread deriving usage from Getopts::Long

I second using Getopt::Long with Pod::Usage when possible. It works well in practice, and I don't have to lug around extra README files or man pages.

For scripts that I've written without Pod::Usage, I like putting my own usage() function at the top of the script. That way I can see it up front as a reference (and make it easier to remember I need to keep it up to date).

[Corion]: At least back in the day Firefox (well, Netscape) used to cache the DNS itself because there was no OS API to asynchronously resolve names (?) Maybe that code still lives on
[Corion]: Mhmm. Our datawarehouse is named after the department, except that the department changed its name one year ago. Now I guess I'm looking for the moral equivalent of "THE Datawarehouse", where "THE" stands for "Traditional High-valued Expertise" ;)
