    perl plugin: Added a plugin to embed a Perl interpreter into collectd.
    This is the long awaited plugin that makes it possible to write plugins in
    plain Perl. This is my first glance at using Perl's C API, so I'm pretty sure
    there are some things that could habe been done better. Much of the plugin
    could have been written in Perl as well, but I decided not to do so mainly for
    exercise reasons ;-)
    This plugin still needs a lot of testing. Also comments on the API, code, etc.
    are very welcome.
    Basically, the plugin is just the glue that's required for Perl plugins to
    access collectd's internals. The following API is currently available:
      register working functions or data sets with collectd
      type - type of the registered data
      name - name of the plugin
      data - reference to the plugin's working subroutine or the data set
      unregister working functions or data sets from collectd
      type - type of the data to be unregistered
      name - name of the plugin
      dispatch the collected values to the write functions
      name - name of the plugin
      values - list of values to submit
    The plugin type may be any of the following:
    A data set is represented as a reference to an array containing hashes with the
    following elements:
      name => $ds_name (required)
      type => $ds_type (default: COUNTER)
      min  => $ds_min (default: NAN)
      max  => $ds_max (default: NAN)
    A value list is represented as a reference to a hash with the following
      values => [ @values ] (required)
      time   => $time (default: time(NULL))
      host   => $hostname (default: hostname_g)
      plugin => $plugin (default: "")
      plugin_instance => $plugin_instance (default: "")
      type_instance   => $type_instance (default: "")
    The default value is used whenever the element is not defined.
    Three arguments are passed to write functions: the plugin's type, the plugin's
    data set and the value list.
    Two arguments are passed to log functions: the log level and the log message.
    In case a function returns false (as interpreted by Perl) the following actions
    are taken depending on the function type:
      read: the function will be disabled for an increasing amount of time
      init: the plugin will be disabled completely
      anything else: a warning is logged
    In addition to the ones listed above the following constants are also exported:
    There is no need to load any Collectd modules - everything is completely
    integrated into collectd.
      add support for accessing the config file
      write documentation
      add checks for perl to configure
