That's for right now.  But look at most linux distributions, and you'll
see that they include a large number of such packages, warranting their
own category.  My Cygwin Ports repository currently contains 90+ Perl
modules and ~40 Python modules, and while there's not reason for all of
them to be in a distribution, I think many are eventual candidates.

In the short term, I would like to contribute the GNOME Perl and Python
bindings and the PyQt bindings.  This would make for a total of ~15 Perl
and 10+ Python modules.

So based on that potential, I would like to see these categories added
now, particularly as they are already Debian categories.
