Hi Owen,
I'm new in this community, so I'm not able to answer your question.
I like scripting (python most) and would like help and be informed about your 
tools development (if it will actually take place).

What (as a user) I can tell is that MDK (a distribution wich I really like) 
has many powerfull opensource tools written in perl (printerdrake, harddrake, 
I never programmed in perl :-( so I never tried to read their sources, but I 
think that if you don't find any ubuntu documentation or other inspiration 
sources, you can have a look at MDK tools.
