I was thinking about the announcement for a while as well. I do not like 
Perl. I think your point is very good though. Right now I am using Zope for 
a client and everything is fine. If Zope supports Perl, they may hire Perl 
people. And you are right, what if they quit? It may happen that the market 
to find qualified Zope programmers becomes even tighter, since Zope 
programmers are now required to speak both, Python and Perl well.
 From a technological and development point of view, I think implementing 
Perl is great and very exciting....imagining making this "scribble" 
language object-oriented. But at the end I like my good looking 
object-oriented Python code. :)
