If any of you have been foolish^Wbrave enough to look at the CPANdeps
source code, you will no doubt have recoiled in horror. That's what
happens when a quick hack that works gets put into production, then has
features added, and becomes popular, gets some needed performance
tweaks, and so on.
It needs a gigantic re-factor. Other than the Mark 1 Eyeball, can
anyone recommend any tools for finding duplicated chunks of code?
Perhaps something using PPI, as that should be able to cope with varying
whitespace/variable names between the duplicated chunks.

Aluminum makes a nice hat.
All paranoids will tell you that.
But what most do not know
Is reflections will show
On the CIA's evil landsat.
