The interesting parts yes. But a lot of stuff doesn't have to be
language specific. So when I fix something for perl I often end up
fixing it for Python. Sometimes the python stuff is obvious enough for
me to feel comfortable fixing it when fixing the perl problem too. If
we split them I think we'll diverge beyond that point. I really think
we pick up some efficiency by sharing the files.
