Many, many years ago I wrote a quick Perl script, called lumberjack, to 
log into various servers and collate log files. Then it got more 
complicated and got a config file. Then the config file got variables. 
And scope. Then I rewrote it using Parse::RecDescent. Then I realised 
that since I was basically doing

    % lumberjack /path/to/config/file

I could actually just do



Then I got scared and never touched it again.
