Perl can't do anything that you can't also do in FORTRAN or COBOL or even a Universal Turing Machine, either. At one level, it's all a matter of convenience, and perl's RE-as-language-syntax is much more convenient to use for serious text hackery than python's RE-as-library-calls. All of which is way OT for a mod_python list, of course.
