Very impressing and motivating words. Feel free to provide Perl bindings
to Dia or do what ever you see fit ;)

Of course if there was a binding API to build on, rather than just
some nasty python hackery I might bother.

Ah, I see Hans has already pointed out on list that he'd rather
everybody learn python that actually be helpful in anyway towards a
language independant API.

I thought I'd have a quick look to see how I would be able to add a
perl binding, as that would be useful, unfortunately there is zero
documentation of how the existing python binding works so I would have
to re-implement from scratch - yeay open source, yeay for knowledge
sharing and cooperation. Instead I just see heckling and anti perl
flames and bigotry from Hans.

How about some useful information Hans (or anybody else), or do I have
to have a hard time reading thru the Dia source code because you did.
