yes and not
you know, lot of leader says perl (in cgi of course, but they dont known 
mod perl) is so slow.
so they use php or java or ...
says mod_perl is really fast (i make a joke in my company, i said i have 
put off my atlhon 1 GHZ and get an xeon precessor, all saids 'whaow', in 
fact i just use mod_perl in the same computer)
geve a complete idiot installation and sample application demonstration 
(maybe an rpm in /usr/local/httpd_modperl on port  8080 ... like 
tomcat's sample)
and after you could says, it perl
you can learn/use perl for your script, you system and you web, you xml 
application, ...

i dont understand why the apache fondation dont talk more about perl 
(whitch is faster) but always of java/xml.

it's just my point of view.
