In some places, anyone who knows how to program is almost seen as a
security risk, almost a 
dreaded "hacker". That is why people ask for $80K SIM systems.
They want someone else to tell them how to pick out the important data out
of log files. A 
20 line Perl program is much too complex.

Anybody that deploys a SIM thinking that they have no programming or
scripting to do within the framework of the SIM itself will likely be
disappointed with the results.
