I would expect so, given that there are .config scripts written in Perl in
Debian. In krb5-config, for instance, there is a bit of Perl code that
parses the default realm out of an existing /etc/krb5.conf file. It's
possible to rewrite that code in sed (I've done it), but it's not quite as
thorough and it's less maintainable.
