What are your thoughts about how this might most effectively and efficiently be achieved?
Add compact, typed arrays to Perl 5.
Remove polymorphism from the Perl 5 ops and add it to SV and descendents. (C++ may be a better option here than C.)
Add a tracing JIT. Iterate on that for a few years.
I'd love to get it done and released at YAPC 2013, which will hopefully be held here in Austin.
Invent a time machine and send the code back from 2023.
Who else should I try to contact directly?
