If the presentation is about the problem, its difficulties and how they
were overcome by the use of Perl, then it sounds great. If the
presentation is about how good their software is, and why I need to use
it, then I won't attend.

It is unclear from the proposal what sort of talk it will be, though
it does mention that the software will be offered as an open source

SPUG has a superb track record of excellent technical talks, with no
sales pitches. Let's keep it that way!
