Late last year I wrote a 50 minute presentation on Perl 5 guts
focusing on the optree for SPUG, the Seattle Perl User's Group. I've
already submitted it to OSCON. In general, I think it's knowledge that
I'd like more perl hackers to have. Feel free to steal from it if you
wish. I think that since I've submitted it to OSCON that it's a no-no
to also submit it to YAPC. If not, I could do perform this on a stage
or let someone else do it.

# KPresenter rendered to HTML. I intend to rerender it in S5.
