I think that it would be easier to proceed with what we have *now* and
put up an improved section of the site for learning Perl. Then, as your
work completes, we can integrate it as appropriate. I suppose what I'm
really saying is: finish your work, and in the meantime we'll publish
pointers to what we already have.
