in thread Perl is dying

for instance using $& somewhere in your program doesn't slow down every other regular expression like it does in Perl.

In perl5.10 there is a new way to do this that doesnt come with a generalized performance penalty. In fact, Perl 5.10 expands the regex syntax greatly and offers some nice new optimisations.
