If Perl's function calls are slow, the right response is to try to fix the implementation, not to try to avoid function calls.
Or, if you can try the hybrid approach, and eat your cake as well as have it...
But, if you study programming languages, you discover that although there is a problem, through a small number of correctness-preserving transformations, this problem can be averted. And by being aware of the problem, you can better appreciate the merits of languages that manage to avoid it.

[Corion]: Two-way data binding means that if you change something in a text box, the corresponding variable in your Javascript gets updated immediately as well, and if you then change the variable, the corresponding text box also gets updated
