in thread how to avoid mis-spelling hash keys?
Pseudo hashes (the strange things that appeared with
the compiler in in 5.005-or-so) will die. They're
depreciated in 5.8, and will be gone from 5.10, because
they slow down all hashes and all arrays (by about 15%,
Schwern calculates). The functionality which currently is
implemented with pseudo-hashes (fields.pm) will remain,
probably using the new restricted hashes.
mmmmm ... restricted hashes
