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.
