For that you might try some alternate approaches:

    - create a command-line wrapper for the API;  in zope you can then
      use python's subprocess module to run the perl program that will
      make the API calls  (I am successfully using this for a certain
      Java API)

    - create a non-zope server to host the perl portion and use
      XML-RPC or SOAP or whatever to communicate to that from your
      zope app

    - port the perl code to python (after all you have the source)
