jdporter kindly messaged me with still more vital historical information
missing from my original post.
Though correctly identifying Ryan "dembones" Postma as one of the early Everything developers,
I somehow totally missed that he was also the ninth Perl Monk!

Other Hope/Calvin College students from the early days who registered at Perl Monks
include krikke (Josh Krikke) and Robo (Rob Oostendorp).
Gratifyingly, jdporter confirmed the correctness of my guesses about:
- Jonathan Pater
- Darrick Brown
- Patrick Schoonveld
- Bryan D Thomas
Heartbreakingly however, sgtbaker
is apparently not a real person, but just one of vroom
's many test accounts.
The revered paco, of course, is no test account.
He's a real person all right, and, tantalizingly, jdporter revealed that
he had some sort of mysterious, perhaps supernatural, association with the early BSI developers.
The paco mystery deepens!
