[sf-perl] REST data parsing

REST only describes how you get that data. It says nothing about the
format of the data returned.

That data is JSON-formatted. Try searching with that buzzword instead.
Warning: I haven't been terribly happy with the existing perl JSON
libraries, but I think that's mostly because of incompatible API

Theoretically, you could read it in as YAML-formatted data, but the
state of YAML modules is even worse.

Why do the things whose whole raison d'etre is simplicity end up being
the most complicated to use?
