My perl-incantation wizard friend (I consider myself mere journeyman)
uses usually convoluted 'map' constructs to do things like this.
It is amazing high-power way to make things -- and often helps you to
make "write only" script.

Wrapping converter regular expressions into map {} structure gives
something like:

@summary = map {
s/torvalds\@.* Torvalds/,
s/alan\@.* Cox/,
... etc ...
} @summary;

See "man perlfunc" and look for " map ".
