Baylis Shanks on atom-syntax list:
Derived from Isofarro's atomrest.pl server and drawing heavily on Benjamin Trott's XML::Atom Perl module, I've written a subclass of the Perl module XML::Atom::Server. The goal is not to implement a complete server, but rather to provide a Perl module that others can subclass in order make a server. It's like XML::Atom::Server, but it provides more prepackaged functionality.
