OMFG! You are my idol!

I've been trying hard for years to just get a Perl interpreter into the kernel,
but here you are requesting to REWRITE LINUX IN PERL! That's so F$@King awesome!

Please do so! And if you succeed, I will personally claim that you have a bigger
set of oysters than I do! ;-)

But be warned, there's a conspiracy out there to rewrite Linux in Python.. **shudder**
