    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 ".
