There are a variety of Perl scripts in the contrib/ directory. As the
README notes, they are not directly maintained and so they are often
broken (as is the case currently). The biggest problem at the moment
is the scripts do not understand the url_part_aliases or
common_url_parts attributes. I believe several people are working on
this, but I don't think a contribution in this direction would be
turned down.
