Hope nobody minds a newbie perspective on this.

I spent the last 4 years programming (and unabashedly loving) Perl, and I
don't think adding Perl to Zope will attract a lot more people.  The large 
scope of Zope and the similarities between Python and Perl mean that I've spent
a whole lot more time struggling with the Zope pieces than with Python.

What makes me most uncomfortable about this is the opportunity
cost.  Every hour of development time integrating Perl is one less hour
working on other parts.  I can say without any reservation that the lack
of documentation has done ten times as much as lack of Perl support to
make my time with Zope difficult.

Just my $0.02
