Yes, Joe, but if *I* write it in Perl, it will be crap code.  :)

I'm working on a Python stub application for this session handler idea.  We
can use it as a basis and build on it, if you guys like it.  What Andrew and
I were talking about doing is actually quite different than what Scott
Wheeler's original Perl script did.  I'm much more interested in the session
handler idea, but I'm sure there's a way to combine them.  I personally
don't think it makes much difference what language they two are written in
as long as they play nice together.
