"The marketoids won't cooperate" has never, ever been a valid argument
for anything. These people are the same people who yelled at me because
I wouldn't make a particular web site compatible with IE 2.0 a couple
ago, even though IE 2.0 and 3.0 are very badly broken in some ways (yes,
wonderful person who argued with me on this was a particularly clueless 
marketoid, but there are a lot of them out there that aren't any

And I sure wouldn't expect the marketoids to be able to write perl,
but something like what Mr. Brown describes would be trivial for someone
who actually programs in perl, and it could be deployed on a corporate
server as a backend filter of some sort.
