use of perl considered dangerous?

[ #35595 ]
While playing with rpmlint on the rpms i build for $WORK, i was confronted with the following warning message for fedora,

"dangerous-command-in-%pre perl"

a quick check of the responsible script showed that perl was put in the same list as rm,ln,userdel,etc. python of course, was not considered dangerous.

*sigh*

there is a distinct possibility that my sense of humour is seriously lacking. more sleep required, and in the meantime, an addition to the custom rpmlint configuration file.

    It just means that python hasn't made the big leagues yet.
