Ever coded a web-browser in perl? Sure it's possible, but will be it fast/stable etc?

It is not that insane idea as it looks on first glance. If you use C/C++ to build speed/memory critical components and use Perl to write less critical components and glue everything together it will work. Good example is Mozilla: basic blocks are C++ components which are glued together by Javascript which is a scripting language also.
