I'm a lurker too ...
Message ID:
I'd like to throw in my $.02. (Not sure this should go to, but I don't know where else to send it!)

Features I would really like to see are:

1. A Perl to C or Perl to machine code compiler. Perl is fast, but
compiled C is an order of magnitude faster. (And I vote for data types,
i.e. my int $num, so that a compiler do its job that much better.)

2. Make it very easy to use compiled libraries.

3. Visual Perl. Just like Visual Basic and Delphi, but its Perl and runs
almost everywhere, not just windows.(I know ActiveState is working on a
product called Visual Perl, but I'm note sure this will be just like VB
or if it will run on non-windows platforms.)

PS. When things start rolling, I'd be happy to do some coding and/or
