Just benchmarks of running ab against Interchange and test code against
a threaded Perl. I had an email discussion with the Debian Perl port
maintainer, and he confirmed the slowdown.
The more subroutine calls you have, the worse it will be, so in all
liklihood object-oriented packages with lots of method-based accessors
will get hit hardest.

I have a cop friend who thinks he ought be able to give a new ticket;
