Having comments, POD or variable names in more than one

The main reason I published the guideline was not to have
others copy my guidelines, and use my coding style. The
guidelines raises a number of points, which I recommend
everyone to think about.

<code> tags not
<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
