MonkOfAnotherSect,

I am generally familiar with the Unladen Swallow saga, and what it revealed about LLVM being less-than-awesome for dynamic languages. Still, I think LLVM may be the best potential target for a Perl 5 optimizing compiler.

I am now leaning more toward LLVM than RPython simply because it will keep everything in Perl/C instead of introducing a non-Perl/C language into the mix. Still, I think RPython is awesome and I hope to learn from their relative success.

Thanks,
~ Will
