This factors lots of code out of Perl_yylex(), which started at 4166
lines. It's now split into multiple functions; the largest remaining one
is 2159 lines. There's still plenty of work that could be done here, but
I hope this makes it easier to understand the lexer without having to
understand the whole thing simultaneously.
