How can I be impressed when the guy doing the reviews rants about how
much he hates perl and suggests using something else. That's not
exactly encouraging - especially when he also suggests rewriting in a
language he'd rather use.

Bugzilla developers seem to have shunned the Perl community, failing
to attract experienced Perl developers, and accumulating an umanaged
and almost unmanagable codebase.
