    Why? Because I would like to learn about the internals of Perl. And what better way to that than hacking the source?! :-)

      I guess for academic curiosity there is no better way, I just find it hard to imagine that there are more than a few dozen people on the planet capable of making any significant improvements to it.

      Personally I'd quite like to have a look at the source code to perl version 1, just to see where it all started in it's most simplistic form.
