Other folks who are in general interested in "that sort of thing" are
writing perl modules for biosequences:  check out their web page at 
http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/bcd/Perl/Bio/welcome.html.

Perl has excellent regular expressions and _was_written_to_be_ a
glue language, so should serve your purposes admirably.  Also, the
folks writing the modules should be more knowledgable about previous
efforts similar to your interests.
