It was fairly chastening a couple of years back looking for a library
implementing Role Based Access Control and finding that there was a Python
one but no Perl one
Then when I was doing WxWidgets programming from ActivePerl having to use
the wxPython library docs http://www.wxpython.org/ because they were more up
to date and complete than the Perl ones
http://wxperl.sourceforge.net/documentation.html in terms of calling from a
wrapper (more useful than the C++ docs).
V8 seems to work well on Unix and takes little code to implement an
event-driven networking app using server-side JS.
