The perldoc documentation has some basics on writing profiles, but not
much about the implementation itself. Think of it as a stand-in until
Jesse gets his notes together.

The basic idea with the perl frontend/backend is that the frontend
parses the profile, sends it to the backend which re-parses it and
creates a tree of onjects of handlers in the xml tree. These are then
executed, and send messages to the frontend where necessary.
