Thanks for the reply, Tom.

I'm looking at 5.8, as we're looking into using Moose to help build all 
the needed classes. I'm guessing that Catamoose in combination with 
Moose classes would have a smaller memory footprint and maybe have 
better performance as well.

Gotta admit that this is guesswork right now though.
