Incidentally I find my "compact" Whitesmiths style looks eerily
similar to python.

Cop this bit of perl line noise:

         # gather dependencies
         my @ds = ();
         foreach (split/\,/, $depends){
               my($regex) = $_;
               $regex =~ s/\*/\.\*/g;

               print STDOUT "\n\nUSING regex $regex (from: $_)\n\n";

               # search for jids with wildcard
               foreach (sort(keys(%jids))){
                     push(@ds, $jids{$_});
            elsif($_ eq 'none'){
               # nothing
               # add the JID if it exists
               push(@ds, $jids{$_}) if defined($jids{$_});
         print STDOUT "\nSze: $#ds - :" . join(':', @ds) . ":\n\n";

Almost readable!
