GC speeds for hashes
Message ID:
I ran some quick time tests on the GC, and hashes are relatively 
expensive to GC, relative to other things. (They're an order of 
magnitude slower than perlstrings, and two orders of magitude slower 
than perlints) They're slow enough that I'd like to take a look at 
them to see if perhaps there's a way to have less GC overhead...
