As an alternative, you could try ZShellScripts which is downloadable
from http://www.librelogiciel.com/software/

It offers semi-transparent support for Python, Perl, PHP, Lisp, Ruby 
(only in the CVS version) , and *nix Bash. 

Each of these languages can access Zope objects in a, more or less, 
semi-transparent way for basic purposes.

e.g. in Perl you get something like this :

    #! /ZShellScripts_Samples/perl
    print "This script is located in : " . $container->getId . "\n";
    print "Username : $username     Password : $password\n"; 
    print "Session ID : $SESSION_ID\n";
    print "Preferences : $SESSION->{'preferences'}\n";
I was told that it is used successfully in the GNUe (GNU Entreprise)
project, but I don't remember if it is for the Perl or PHP part.
