Not these days; internet usage is certainly logged and you'll have to
go via proxy servers, but you'll have access still. The main thing they'll
jump on is use of forums, web mail, IM, etc - basically anything which can
be used for communication which can't be monitored or logged.

Perl is used quite a bit at the place I work at - it keeps bits of
infrastructure running.

It does depend on the bank however.
