It's a waste of time; it can't be done; you shouldn't even try; it's anti-Perl; anti-Larry; anti-FOSS; anti-us -- and tantamount to genocide to even try.
You forgot the Trilateral Commission, Project Majestic, Holocaust denial, and the Bavarian Illuminati. Bonus points for an Erich von Daniken reference connected to the Zapruder film by way of birthers and 9/11 was an inside job Ron Paul supporters, because clearly the only two possible choices are "do it the BuK way!" or "let Perl 5 die a slow, stagnant death".
Have you ever profiled to see where Perl spends most of its time?
Have you ever implemented a dynamic language like Perl?
But there is no point in trying to discuss it; because the naysayers have already decided the outcome of all possible investigations and strategies.
You ask an expert for an opinion, you get an expert's opinion. If you want to build a project on the opinion of uneducated amateurs, I suppose there's a chance you'll succeed.
Conservatively 200% looks doable without changing Perl's syntax or semantics.
I will believe that when I see it.
