Obviously I am not qualified to review the internals of Perl, so I cannot
do this (plus, I'm swamped with work).

That being said, Perl has evolved tremendously since version 5 was released
three decades ago. While Corinna isn't as large as all of the other changes
combined, I believe it's the single *largest* change in the language in
that timeframe. A review of Paul's work is very important because we don't
want to get this wrong! I know we're all busy, but even a cursory glance
would be helpful.
