Specifying what exactly is wrong is an essential issue here:
- Just "perl is hard to understand" isn't a problem for users, users
don't code it.
- Not being used by other distros is again not a problem, each distro
has native tools that no other distros use (as misc said a couple of
emails up)

So, no, I wouldn't throw my old box out the window because if it works
even if it's slow, until I buy a new box / can afford a new box.
drakxtools work, until a viable alternative, if needed at all, is
provided they should be kept.
