Uri; I'll do it.

A minimum of a few hours here and there of my employers time will be
largely eclipsed by the benefits I will reap... learning how to develop
with other people, being guided by a very respected Perl hacker, working
on a project that will be used by other people, and reception of direct
and to-the-point feedback.

Ironically, I'm at a stage now where I'm trying to find a more
manageable way to write my own tests, so this may work out well.

I'll review the code tonight, and then tomorrow I'll contact you
off-list with any questions I have, and we can go from there.

Cheers,

Steve
