My boss isn't going to suddenly tell me that I'm now either a perl
developer or unemployed, because he hired me for my judgement &
decision skills as well as my keyboard pounding skills. If your boss
didn't hire you for that reason - well, its an excellent time to be a
skilled IT worker looking for a job. & if your boss doesn't value
your intelligence and also wants you to suddenly hack perl, then your
boss didn't read your resume.

It's also an even more excellent time to be a sklled Zopista looking
for a job. Find a good place looking to start a Zope project, build
them a site, & you'll be deciding whether to use Perl products or not.
I can understand the fear of dilluting a good clean python/C
environment with evil dirty perl, but if I didn't think that a Zope
environment will continue to be a good place to be, I'd already have a
different email address.
