TPF bug-grant report #69, #70
Message ID:
(This report covers two weeks)

I spent the first week failing to implement an optimisation that would
eliminate the need to have backref magic when a GV and CV refer to each
other (this is originally what the GvCV_set and GvGP_set macros were
introduced for). It turns out it was a lot harder than I had expected,
and I abandoned the attempt :-(

Apart from that I tidied up a few security/taint related tickets.

I spent this week looking at a few issues that showed up when using clang.
These don't show up against TPF hours since there aren't tickets associated
with them. Mainly I'm looking at getting Perl_rpeep not to deeply recurse
where possible. I nearly have this working, but it's not quite ready yet.

Report for period 2011/06/27 to 2011/07/10 inclusive
