Tim O'Reilly will think it's sublime:

"Scripting opens up development to users, letting them show vendors 
where they want the technology to go, filling in the gaps between the 
vendor's paid offerings. It's an incredibly important part of the open 
source landscape, and one that doesn't get enough attention. As Hassan 
Schroeder, Sun's first webmaster, once said, 'Perl is the duct tape of 
the Internet.' Where's the duct tape for my cell phone?"
