Is the CLI available in alpha/beta somewhere? I would like to take a 
little look. Even though I think SOAP would be nicer since it would add 
the possibility of accessing RT over a network connection...

I will investigate a little more into Perl. Perhaps I can work a little 
bit on rt-soap-server (and the WSDL) but I'm afraid I might not be too 
much help...
