Ah yes good point (should really have looked at the stuff my group was
doing really... :)

On top of unimelb SIS and IP allocation system, could add:
  - WebRaft (Online teaching and learning system, all in house modules
    written in perl with a few third party application extensions)

    WebRaft currently supports soemthing in the order of 1900+ active
    subjects, 32,000+ students and 1800+ staff on a single installation (a
    figure we've not seen generally matched by commerical teaching and
    learning systems anywhere unless hundreds of thousands of dollars of
    underlying hardware are involved. (So it's a high-reliability, perl
    development with the additional bonus of being low cost as well. :)
