Heh, lucky you. :)

I try to run them all as part of the fedora builds since
they cover much more than I'd ever use.  That's the main
reason I noticed the bare python.  That would trip me up
when it came time to build on a near-future fedora where
python isn't installed by default and I only wanted to
require python3 for the build/runtime scripts.

Yep, that's certainly even better and if Jeff H. can use
perl relatively easily (or one of the many perl folks here
can help with that part of the test), that's great.  The
best way to solve many problems is avoid having them. :)
