in thread The problem with "The Problem with Threads"

I'd appreciate a link to a decent recent technical discussion of the problem of the heaviness of shared memory in P5 and reasonable potential fixes. Failing that, a couple paragraphs that summarize the problem and the fix you're suggesting would be great. Or maybe you could write a meditation that invites monks to focus on the technical issues related to the problem and potential fixes?

I started to put something together in reply to Corion's post above, but RL took priority. Give me a week or two and I'll post my demonstration of the problems, highlight (some of) the source(s) of those problems; and offer some suggestions as to how they could be solved (for perl5).
