*please* can you give us the URL to the average perl program (or suitable
sane benchmark suite) so that we can test all sorts of optimisations

(hint - if you want perl to go faster at something, write a slow regression
test that uses lots of that thing. Over time it will bias patches in favour
of speeding up that test)

Failing any URL or suitable benchmark, I'm likely to continue testing on
the regression suite, which means that users of will see
