And to further emphasise this, I don't care if Morton Statley's scout group
appear in the logo list beside other people. 

All I really want is a 'sales tool'[1] for people who want to suggest Perl
to their bosses and maybe benefit IMHO from list of logo's that use Perl.


p.s. the good news for me is that we already have a volunteer to admin
such a page, kudos to him.

[1] yes i realise i'm a sad sales orientated person, but i'm pretty sure 
i'm not the only perl hacker in my position.
