in reply to Perl 5 Compiler, Again!

perl doesn't compile into bytecode; it compiles into several complex internal data structures, such as OPs and stashes.

An attempt was made to emit this as portable bytecode with B::Bytecode, but it was found IIRC, to take longer to load the bytecode and convert back into perl's internal structures, than it did to just recompile the code.
