if you want to dip a little into a related buzzword, i give you ESB,  
services bus. the idea being that you have a common bus that has  
multiple entry
protocols, e.g. high REST, SQL, CORBA, foo and lots of exit points  
into existing
SOA, legacy databases etc.

its an architecture component I always thought Perl would be perfect  
for implementing
due to volume of CPAN

if anyone implements an open source ESB, please call it Fullers.
