I have spilled some work to
a raw translation of the python director system to perl5. I believe
this attempt should be fully reverse compatible with existing perl code
and fairly cross compatible with python directors.
I have included documentation updates, test-suite entries for
many of the director tests, and usage examples. I still have to work
out a destuctor problem, make code style match the existing codebase, do
profiling & coverage checks, and verify portability against perl
versions other than v5.10.
Before I put much more time into this path, I'd like to know if
it appears to be a sensible approach.
