   "... which really shows what a horrid shell-person I am (I still
   use the old tools I learnt to use fifteen years ago. I bet you can
   do it trivially in perl or something sane, and I'm just stuck in
   the stone age of UNIX)."  -- Linus Torvalds

So we have here an endorsement of the power of perl, combined with a
suggestion that it isn't sane... I don't know that this belongs in
the "advocacy" pile, but it's getting there.
