The Problems of Perl: The Future of Bugzilla

I fully agree with all wicked's comments! Moving away from Perl to 
another language won't fix anything... except making me leave the 
project forever. I'm not going to waste my time to learn any new 
language (I would vomit if you were suggesting JAVA) and to rewrite code 
which is already working fine as is. And I don't mention all the 
security holes we will introduce only because we wanted to be more 
clever than we currently are.

Killing Perl-based ssdbot in favor on Python-based buggybot doesn't mean 
we should also kill Perl-based Bugzilla.
