Perl-to-Python converter/translator?

I've done some perl-->python, and found (at first) that I missed some
of the perl idioms.  So I did a python module to support perl-ish
idioms.  See "pyperl" at:

It lets you pretty much read the perl code and write the python code
on the fly.  More tedious than true converter, but do-able.  

I agree with other posters that after you get into python's own
idioms, you won't miss perl.
