Bah, I'm obviously not a very good Perl programmer, then. 233 characters
is all I could make myself get it down to tonight, without my head
exploding, without resorting to map/lambda, and without representing the
template as a set of numbers. It's still pretty readable; maybe I'll
take a peek at it tomorrow.

Good "practice", though. (Or bad, if you consider the goal... :-)
