RE: Version control
CVS is your friend if you are concerned about controlling version releases. You can use a scripted cvs client to ensure that clients and individual boxes all run the latest and greatest version of your code.
If client access to/modifying source is an issue, how do you handle it for existing csh scripts? If it's not an issue for csh scripts, why is it an issue for the perl equivelent?
If obfuscating source is a big deal, perl has a compiler or you could obfuscate the source.

RE: Programmer availability
Frankly, I think your ex-boss has a bias against perl (or anything different). Much of his post is FUD against perl.
