That's why I said it's AFAIK doable ONLY using source filters. It was a nice exercise writing the module, I do like the syntax that it allows, but I don't think I will ever use it in production code.
The code could be improved to match the Perl identifiers and variables better, but I'm not sure it'd be worth it. If anyone wants to extend the code, use it and even release it to CPAN it's fine with me. I doubt I ever will. Though ... you never know ;-)
Update: BTW, I searched all my Perl sources including the perl instalation and only found /,\s*\.\.\.\s*\)/ in PODs and comments and in one string printed by DBI.pm, one in Tk\X11Font.pm, one in Benchmark.pm and one in DB_File.pm.
