I saw some conversation about this a few months ago, but wanted to
revisit this.

I think the main theme of what I saw was that the perl modules should
be rewritten into ruby.

Any better way to leverage what is already there in Perl?

I'm trying to convert what we have in Perl to Ruby, but the folks who
maintain the perl are nervous of a re-write...let alone the time it
would take to do it.

This is custom perl stuff.  I don't believe it is proprietary,
however.

Thanks for any direction.
