in thread length() and the Schwartzian transform

NOT to show its speed or lack thereof
My main issue with that example is not that it's slow, but that it's misleading. For string scalars, Perl's length returns a value that has already been calculated (and cached) elsewhere. It's just a dumb "accessor method" for that internally stored value, which makes caching it pointless.
