> - Configure support required. Merijn, Andy, could you help me with this?

yes, I could/can, but I'd like to feel the general opinion first.

Adding stuff to Configure seldom(ly) gets removed, so I want to be sure
this is something to stay.

++ for digging into speed-ups

I know Reini aims for 750%+ but every 10% counts. I would not use it
myself, as I don't use taint on 95% of my work, but I do in 5%. At this
time those 5% are not (yet) important for speed. I would like to see a
run-time option to get the same speed gain though

 $ perl -⊥ -E'…'

Then one could add -⊥ to PERL5OPTS for speed gains :)
