I don't want to under cut Titus but I would be willing to do it for 
$990,000.  That is a full 10k less.  Seriously though, it would be 
really hard.  I Googled for a Perl unit test generator and found nothing 
but another person asking for one.  Hmmm I wonder if Parrot 
(http://www.parrot.org/) would help you with the task of integrating 
Python unit tests with Perl modules though.  It will be so nice when you 
have test coverage and can use all the good Python tools and then slowly 
replace the Perl code when you need to touch that area of code.
