in thread read()

Why can't you `my @data = <FILEHANDLE>;` for binary data? It won't exactly be logically split, but `my $r = join '', @data` works perfectly fine.... Of course, I wouldn't want a huge file in memory...

    This way you effectively pwn all of the chr(10) in your binary file... which is bad. The better "slurping" solution is to undef$/ and then using <>;
