interesting order, and not a bad one.  Teach them good skills, then perl (-:

Python is useful everywhere perl is (or any other scripting language for that
matter).  CGI, site design (Zope), etc.  Also good for real programming.  GUIs,
admin tools, etc.  Red Hat's installer is a lot of python.  python is also
great as a design language.  Work out the rough flow of the program then write
it in C(++).
