There are several open source report writers. Incoprorating theminto Koha
might prove to be a better solution. Here's some URLs form my bookmarks.
http://datavision.sourceforge.net/ Uses Ruby
http://www.dai.ed.ac.uk/homes/timc/gurgle/ Uses C/C++

A search of cpan.org found me several Perl-specific report writer modules

better than starting from scratch. Then effort could be put into
providing a sensible web interface.
