Perl would gain a big leap in flexibility if a pragma (or whatever) could state something like: "use LessMem;"

The perl porters are aware of this, as the documentation for the less pragma shows:

NAME less - perl pragma to request less of something from the compiler SYNOPSIS use less; # unimplemented DESCRIPTION Currently unimplemented, this may someday be a compiler directive to make certain trade-offs, such as perhaps use less 'memory'; use less 'CPU'; use less 'fat';

Ofcourse, as it is unimplemented, it is still useless in practice, but you could try convincing the perl 5 porters that it should at least do something in 5.10.

-- Joost downtime n. The period during which a system is error-free and immune from user input.
