in reply to Multi-line comments in perl code?

I think it's a good idea to program in the idiomatic standard of a language. Everyone knows that Perl comments begin with #. Using POD for multi-line comments is a bit of a hack. Sure, it's a little more work to type in several lines of #, but it's the expected way. You won't confuse anyone by doing it.
