My take.

Vertical white space rules!

some_function ( if_it_wasnt_for, bad_luck, I_wouldnt_have, any_luck_at_all, ) or die "handy place for your error msg\n";
Short names, long names, I don't care. Just make them meaningful. A few moments spent choosing a good name can save hours of misunderstanding (even your own) code later.

Code reuse is a good thing. I like variable name reuse too. :-)
