This is an overreaction. :)

Zope still only uses Python in the core (with some C thrown in to support
the Python). This won't change. I don't even think it *can* be changed;
Perl product support would probably be such a pain in the neck that even
Jim Fulton would say it's 'difficult' (and not just 'tricky', which is
Fultonese for 'very difficult' already).

I don't think Perl will hurt Zope a lot. My main worry is that some part of
the Zope python sources will have to be less clean in order to get Perl
support. Along with weird side effects that may occur.

But, since that source is open source, if it becomes too messy, someone
will eventually stand up and clean it up. The more I look at DTML the more
I want to clean *that* up, or better yet, reimplement it, and at one point, 
given time...
