It's possible, but it's not something I'm generally all that fond of, 
mainly because it'll mean littering up the world with bits of compiled perl 
code. I suppose we could have a cache somewhere we use if the right ENV 
variable is set, but that's a dicey thing too.

Either way, I'm tempted to leave this for later. We can always add it in 
after 6.0.0 is out.
