That sounds like a reasonable way to make Thrift, generally, faster on
Perl -- a goal that I personally have no interest in.

I'm making an idiomatic interface - one that works as well as possible
with Perl's native style and data structures, and that is easy & natural
for Perl users.
Using Swig I'd end up with something that's just as awkward as Thrift is
now, just less slow.  Not my itch, not gonna scratch it.
