These are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Core library routines
(such as the actually searching in the regexp module) could be
hand-coded in C*, while other portions that lend themselves to a LCL
(such as the parsing of regexps themselves) could use approach 2.

I think any monolithic answer to this question will be wrong. Use perl
for the things perl is good at, and use C for the things C and related
languages are good at. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
