Umm....there's a big difference between liking perl, and putting
it into the tree. I'm a big fan of perl, but I certainly don't want
to see it there. :-)

I'm not sure that the handbook isn't something we could put under,
say, the doc tree instead and just make the source and formatted
versions available, along with instructions on how to turn the
former into the latter if you really want to DIY.
