Having done both Perl dev and sysadmin jobs, I'd just like to note that a
good Perl hacker can be a good sysadmin too without a vast amount of effort.

However, I'd also like to note that one person should do one or the other
job. The Perl stuff takes up 90% of your time, and the sysadmin stuff takes
up the other 90%.
