I know why this thread is so lazy - it's because everybody dislikes QA
& testing :)

Nobody criticized this approach so I assume that it's not too bad. I'm
going to implement a sketch for server-side bunch of scripts - one
that accepts uploads and puts them to a temp directory and maybe some
simple reports. They won't use any database. I believe that most
common server-side engine is CGI (not PHP or J2EE) so I'd like to
implement this using Perl CGI scripts. Since this is a first draft,
I'm not going to use advanced templates language like XSLT. Including
HTML output in script is bad idea so I'm going to use something like
HTML::Template [1] for pages generation and CGI::Lite [2] for requests

Perl is chosen just because it suites well for fast prototyping development.

If nobody objects, I'm going to start coding.
