For what it's worth, my understanding is that Google uses Perl in its
release management, but its more of a Python & Java shop overall (eg
what do they allow to run on the Google App Engine).

Also back when Lycos was the only game in town, an acquaintance there
told me their Perl was a performance hit, and they were rewriting
anything that executed as a result of a visitor's search in C. That
was circa 1994 and I never followed up.
