Let me just mention where my inspirations came from: shame of shames, it
came from Perl. It's hard to use Perl's organization as is, because it
doesn't (view itself) as a general purpose langauge: so things like CGI.pm
are toplevel, and regex's are part of the syntax. However, there are a lot
of good hints there.
