Howdy jcwren,

Personally I think you are flat out nuts, the security concerns of having a variety of perlish folk making whoopee on one box makes my eyes squint. Me thinks you have been dipping into the sacrament wines agin.

However, if you choose to take this road to madness cut us in for any dns or backup mail services you think you might want/need/desire. I'd offer hosting the box but I have clients - the thought of a bunch of monks running willy nilly from inside my network is too scary for me to consider.

I think your biggest problem is going to be *what version of perl to run?*

Personally *if I were king* I would put mysql (or postgresql) on the box for administrative reasons, I use a combination of databases, shell scripts and web forms to maintain my httpd.conf and email forwarding (via /etc/virtualhosts). It would also give folks a database to work against.
