Congratulations on your Perl effort. I've been working on a
similar project, and have achieved about the same level of
success you have.
I based my work on the Python embed project I did (see
http://pywx.idyll.org). It is not as far along as our Python
implementation, but it would be a short effort to do so.
If you want, we could pool resources on this one to accelerate
development. We can continue this off-list since it's probably
of limited interest to others....
