    None of the perl scripts looks complicated.
    Obivious question is if the same functionality could be achived by a simple
    c program.
    In the tool chain we use small C utilities in favour of for example
    perl scripts in several places.

    I would like to see perl kept out of the short-list of required programs
    for the main stream kernels.
    If the prize to do this is to write one or two small c tools to klibc
    then I'm willing to pay that.
