Whatever happened to PERL_COPY_ON_WRITE? Was it a failure? Should
it be expunged, or revived? Or left to rot?
(I'm just looking at how the regex engine sometimes copies the match
string for capture purposes, and how COW would fix a bunch of stuff).
In my day, we used to edit the inodes by hand. With magnets.
