This is already mostly done, hmp has ported sockstat (which should be

application that requires perl in our base), so I think we all are 
holding our breath for him to actually commit it. :) So when his 
sockstat port
is commit we will probably remove perl as soon as possible, that is at 
least my
wish. If you find any other tools that needs to be converted from perl 
please do
so and post your patches here.
Oh, cool.  I was browsing the archives and didn't see too much in the 
way of talk about removing old-crufty-perl, so I was assuming that it 
was "on the back burner" so to speak.

Since this appears to be not the case, I'll watch for remove-perl 
related updates, and poke my big nose in when relevant :)
