I'm willing to create proposal patches for any packages on the livecd requiring perl. Can someone with a livecd image handy do "rpm -e perl" on it and see how large the list of dep errors thrown is?

Seems non-trivial.
Also, the live image is supposed to be a comparable experience to a
normal install.  Removing something as integral as perl runs pretty
counter to that goal.

Perl is pretty split out these days, so it shouldn't be that bad.
