in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 10: Kickstarter & Performance Benchmarks

I am learning more and more as I go along!
How much do you know about Perl internals?

just show what you have on the next YAPC - that's good enough to inspire a number of people, that's it.
I am EU person, with little to zero chances to be at the USA.
