Just curious what you meant by "maintainability problems" in Perl.  I 
work quite a bit in Perl (one of several favorites). I also code and/or 
have coded in a host of other languages.  I haven't had any probs with 
this issue for what I use Perl for.  I am curious about your perspective 
on the issue.

I haven't tried Python yet, but I am curious enough to give it a whirl 
at some point.
