Good document. I can hardly fault it technically.

A few suggestions (I am a native speaker of (British) English):
Alright, thank you! I edited the Original Post in order to use most of your suggestions.

($untainted) = $tainted =~ m/(.*)/g;
($untainted) = $tainted =~ m/(.*)/g;
(And you just finished warning people not to use redundant qualifiers) :-)
Oh, I had a really hard time finding out what the difference between the two lines of code is. But indeed. I altered it, so now it is ($untainted) = $tainted =~ m/(.*)/; :)

Well, thanks!

Besides that, my code is untested unless stated otherwise.
One more: please review the article about regular expressions (do's and don'ts) I'm working on.

[LanX]: so that's where you've been the last two years? Compiling Python?
