The web part was pointedly not using Perl, because the CTO was convinced that it absolutely had to be apache modules written in plain C (not C++, can't afford the extra overhead!) for absolute maximum performance when retrieving the data from an SQL database and before passing it off to an XSL engine to turn it into a web page. Shockingly, this was one of his least-bad decisions.
