Ok I got scrambled text, so I'll try and make the best of this. I was
hoping that we could do the normalisation on insert into the stash. So
that the stash it's self was normalised. This would make it a compile
time operation, or one hit for each symbol you are exporting. I don't
know enough of the Perl internals as to why this would have to be on
access rather than insert.
