I also appreciated your mapping between the two languages.  How hard
would it be to write a reverse mapping?  I know very little perl, but
occasionally need to look at an existing perl script and try to figure
out what it does.  A table that gives the python equivalent of common
perl expressions could be very useful.

Today's forecast:  Sunny, with occasional cloudy periods and a chance
                   of precipitation in some areas.
