I agree on principle and I briefly considered this as well, but it
would require considerably heavier glue scriptery than I was prepared
to spend time on. Given the apparent orphaned state of the Perl bindings
(won't install properly, and lacks most calls added since 1.1 or 1.2),
I was aiming for a minimal amount of changes to improve matters without
breaking anything else, not claiming maintainership.
