It really makes us (the world) sad that in 2014 you're still using
perl.. :(.

Now, for real, don't make comments like that ^, we don't want that kind
of wars on our lists, ok?.

Back to the point that you asked, I am not really sure but I remember I
saw someone that made something like years ago and probably is
abbandoned, i will check if I can find something, but python packaging
it's more or less mechanical (I'm taking a gamble on the numbers but I
think 70%~ of python packages have a similar PKGBUILD structure).
