I think automatic translation would be a very bad way of getting
understanding of both. Translating from another language to Python
usually leads to very un-Pythonic code - syntactically correct and
working Python, but not 'real' Python. I assume that translating from
Python to Perl will lead to something similarly un-Perlish.
