Don't use XS code

From what I have read about the recently announced Ponie project - we will now be able to port XS code over to run on Parrot. From the Ponie FAQ:

The guts of Perl 5 will be ripped out and made to work using Parrot PMCs rather than Perl 5 Sv structures, which will mean it will be compatible with Perl 6 . Any XS-based code that uses the published Perl 5 API should work fine without any problems. Anything that was marked for deprecation in Perl 5.8.0 will be deprecated in Ponie.

[Corion]: marto: Yep, but I didn't make it up north, sorry ;)
[Corion]: But LPW was enjoyable, even though it's always a bit hectic due to cramming everything into one day
[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
