If perl6 is written in perl5, why can't we make memory/speed tradeoffs
explicit?  For example, why couldn't we shuffle bits in and out of
SvTYPE?  To me, it's all about capturing the logical relationships which
are implied indirectly by the present perl5 source code.

May the best description of competition prevail.
