Have you ever looked into Perl?  We use it almost exclusively for
integrating large distributed systems, and its regular expression system is
second-to-none in my experience.  Python's a good language (from what I hear
- I keep meaning to look into it), but Perl has a lot going for it also.  It
isn't GPL (it's distributed under the Artistic License), but even RMS agrees
that it is Free in every sense of the word.
