in thread Why does a Perl 5.6 regex run a lot slower on Perl 5.8?

I am content about the one thing that I find relevant: my Perl codebase was successfully ported to Perl 5.8.5. My blaming the Perl community and other people's blaming me have both proved besides the point and their only merit -- artistic at most. As seems to always be the case, those people who had only techical points to make were the most useful.
