The --extrude option can produce code with syntax errors
The --extrude tries to put as many newlines in the formatted code as
possible. This option is very useful for testing perltidy but not for
actual formatting. Occasionally it will produce code which Perl
considers to have a syntax error. These problems usually involve code
where Perl is having to guess the tokenization based on whitespace.
Since the --extrude option is typically only used for testing perltidy,
this type of error should not normally occur in practice.
