For sure not.
Currently discussing anything remotely advanced is not working within the
concept of p5p mailing list threads. It's rather doing more harm. Whenever
I'm suggesting an improvement, someone will come up and disable the possibility
and vice versa, whenever I'm criticizing a performance regression it
will stay in.

I'll rather wait for new management or devs, as it happened
thanksfully with parrot recently,
so that the poisonous people will not harm the project anymore and we can go on.

Generally all of it is needed in perl5 core. 99% of it is already
envisioned in the
relevant perl5 books and old development discussions. B::CC is just a playground
to try it out earlier as p5p development is stagnant and poisened.
