I've already received email from 2 Perl hackers asking for an URL. :-) 
To prevent future ones, and fix a typo: UEFI does not have Perl, it has 
a port of CPython 2.7, last updated 2012. Sorry Perl hackers.

(And unlike rest of network stack and Telnet, Python.efi isn't baked 
into any System ROMs I know of, it'd have to be added to a system's EFI 
System Partition.)
