Sorry for the late response.  I had intended on replying to it and
thought I had at some point, but I can't seem to find my reply.

Perl CGI's actually do work fairly well, especially if you tie in things
like mod_perl to speed up (remove) the initialization time of the
interpretor.  Modifying gnatsweb is one of those pet projects one of our
web developers would love to do, if he had the time. :-/  I could see
breaking out the GNATS protocol into a package of its own, i.e.

I don't think it would be all that complicated.  You could use any of
the language-of-choice's existing protocol libraries as a model.  The
GNATS network protocol is fully documented in the info docs and is
accessible from the GNATS homepage.

Heh.  You're doing fine.  Better than my German, to say the least. ;-)
