Can you discuss the criteria for procedural language selection? I'm curious to
know whether PL/pgSQL will be the sole procedural language used, or whether
PL/perl is expected to be used in some areas of the LedgerSMB in-database

I'm interested in this question mostly for installation and maintenance
reasons, e.g. the impact it has on installers, manual setup, dataset loading,
dependency package updates, etc. Thanks.
