This is a _very_ recruitment-focused CSV file at present - the only data
it contains is company name, location (in a weird format), and whether
they're hiring or not.  I'm very reluctant to mark my company as
'dormant' or 'inactive' on a list of "information about companies that
use Perl" just because we're not hiring.
