There's a bunch of leftover "require" and "use" statements we no
longer need and can get rid of, along with some excessive
imports via "use".

IO::Handle usage isn't always obvious, so add comments
describing why a package loads it.  Along the same lines,
document the tmpdir support as the reason we depend on
File::Temp 0.19, even though every Perl 5.10.1+ user has it.

While we're at it, favor "use" over "require", since it it gives
us extra compile-time checking.
