I've also got a ipaq running familiar. I didn't find the perl distribution earlier tho, so I rolled my own, but it didn't exactly work too well, so it's great to hear there's a distriubtion that provides all that stuff.
I think it would be a great idea to support the pimPAQ project, but I sorta feel that familiar lacks a window manager properly suited for a handheld. Also, I'm somewhat disapointed by the handwriting recognition, it''s hard to type fast on the virtual keyboard, so if I want to program perl on the move, I think I prefer my Powerbook G4 :) But the notion that you could write your own utilities for the ipaq in perl appeals to me, so I think I'm going to look further into that :)
Hopefully familiar has a future =)
