I think Perl has more of a 

+       / 
+      |
+      |     
+     /
+     |
+     |

==========>   More knowledge


That is, once you get beyond trivial, you hit the wall, even thougn in
the beginning things move quite smoothly. In perl trivial things (awk
stuff) are easy (but not easier than in Python; just requiring a few
keystrokes less), and difficult things are "possible", but hardly
worth trying (unless your boss/teacher/whatever forces you).
