    Locked hashes are great, but if the implementation is slowing down all hashes, then I agree they should no longer be built in, and should be moved to a module

    That said, I think it's an important enough feature that this module should be bundled with Perl, so that people relying on fields.pm (which was first released with Perl 5.5) and Hash::Util (Perl 5.8) won't need to install anything extra.
