Hmmm sorry I'm speaking without examining code, but.. is it really
necessary to have both perl and python?  I'll leave the flamewar over
which one to use to the list, but.. it seems a little bit excessive to
have two languages that are quite similiar in funcionality...  If I
were given clear directions, I could have a shot at redoing the python
portions in Perl.  I'm sure there are much more qualified people (ie,
that speak python!:-), but I hate to ask for things like this without
at least trying to help out somehow..
