Do you need "Fast Perl"? Look at "Static Perl" project at once.
Static Perl - Fast calculation, parallel process, GC, static typing, VM with perlish syntax without XS
There is already a thing called staticperl on CPAN… maybe pick a different name to avoid confusion?
OK, static perl is temporary name. This is not yet production.
I will change this name.
