  I added a variant of pe.em#set_pe_name() that can understand those sorts of
arguments, and a field in the definfo struct that allows to supply a list of
the abbreviated names and their corresponding values, so the mechanism is
nicely reusable.

  Yep, that would obviously be A Good Thing (TM).

  The mechanism is ready and waiting for you, just add the data tables!

  Nope, should be easy to cut out the relevant bits, discarding ld-isms, and
paste the remainder into your code.  Copy of WIP attached for your
convenience; I've got to add doco and testcases before I can submit it, but
the parsing stuff is ready to fly and I'd appreciate any extra testing it gets :)
