Not a matter of taking my time. Only so many hours in a day!
I believe I've cracked the shell on the reading config files properly.. going to write them as libraries/modules.. since I want to run code in the config files, not just specify vars. That'll be done tonight at least.
Once I get the other Perl issue worked out, going to put a post up on sephtin.com with the status, some info for testers, etc.
Some kind of update will be there before the weekend.
