You have my sympathies.  Spent plenty of time myself rewriting COBOL and 
FORTRAN, and quite a bit of PL/SQL, but at least it wasn't perl...

Just for kicks, I brought up the source code for the TNC-X - never 
looked at it before, but it's about as I expected - nearly every line is 
completely documented, unless it's really obvious what it does. 
Unfortunately, not all APRS software authors are computer science 
professors!  =]

I think I manage about a 5:1 ratio, but I use a bit more whitespace than 
John...
