using DBI for an Oracle database connection to a version

Is it possible or logical to use the
dbms_application_info.set_session_longops procedure to pass
information of long running processes from a perl script? If so how
have you done it?

I typically use dbms_application_info.set_module or set_action to pass
information on the program and area within the program. But I'd like
to use set_session_longops to track the progress of perl scripts from
within the database.
