in reply to GetOpt::Long usage style

The one thing I don't like about it is that there are variable declarations that aren't at BOL. (There are exceptions to my own rule here. if (my $foo = bar()) { ... } and foreach my $foo (...) { ... } are such. They're special and scope related.)

I want variable declarations to be at BOL because then I easily find them when I need to, like when moving code out to a subroutine. It's also easier to realize what scope my change will be effective in when patching.

But it's quite possible that GetOptions make you realize that you have variable declarations in it, and then it's not an issue (until someone like me wants to patch it ;)).

Besides that; nice touch.
