    If you look at the perlfunc source, there's a list of functions getpwnam() to endservent() that just have a blank line for documentation, and are mentioned in a paragraph later - good for humans, bad for code. /^set/ and /^get/ are being removed because of this, but I forgot about /^end/, thanks for pointing it out.

    It's a KludgeItTillItWorks fix, but blank hints should be all gone now (no, really)
