Yes, that was my thought exactly.  My Perl is far too rusty for me to
offer a library for it, but I figure my Python implementation should
be comprehensible enough that anyone who can read code could figure
out how to make a Perl version too.  (That way, everyone who has to
make a menu-method file gets to choose which one is best for them.)
For all I care, you could write your menu-method file using Intercal
or Tcl; just as long as it works :-)
