But if you're doing a backend in Perl, you almost certainly have a module for that, so there's no need to write C wrappers for use by bash, unless you have a Perl backend and a bash frontend. :^)

Sure, we could use standard IPC protocols...but something XML based
would be alot better (especially with XML Objects) and it would keep it
seperate so you just don't have a perl back-end, but you could have a
back-end in python, C, C++, Java or whatever :)

dunno, adding X is wasting resources, imho..

(ps, may go offline for a little bit, we are
