	Oh, definitely. I think lintian should be run at all feasible
 points on the upload trail. All _I_ was emphasizing was that the
 maintainers can help. They can run lintian at home, too, to whatever
 extent possible.

	We are not big brother -- but we still require our packages to
 confogrm to policy. If that seems too harsh to some one, then the
 project is probably a bad idea for them.

 @ind now has pairs of indicies (0-origin) into $_ that bound the
 non-$word items; convert into result: while (@ind) { $start =
 shift(ind); $end = shift(ind);
