HTCP Purger

I have written an multicast HTCP purger, essentially a perl script  
that listens to HTCP purges and then purges from the local varnish. I  
wrote it for use with Mediawiki, and I am wondering if I should  
commit it here or over at mediawiki svn?

I might look into adding the purge code in C, I don't think it would  
be hard but I was in a hurry and it was before I started looking more  
at the core. Any directions on how you would want that implemented so  
I don't go off in a wrong direction. Instinctively I would say a  
dedicated thread listening on the multicast port.

Also, I am talking about Varnish at Velocity on Tuesday :)
