The files in contrib are there because some folks think they are useful.

I have been programming with perl since version 3.0 was released to the
net, so I don't have any problems reading it, but I do understand what
you mean.

If you have examples for commitinfo, verifyinfo, loginfo and taginfo
scripts in some other language that you would like to contribute, by all
means feel free to do it as long as you give it some kind of copyright
license that allows it to be put into a cvs source distribution, I would
have no problems seeing examples in shell, python, tcltk, c, or whatever
other kind of language seems reasonable.
