Except that until Inline is included in core, it won't be a widely used
way to build performant code, IMHO. That, and XS really isn't that
hard. Like anything, it takes a bit of learning (as did mod_perl when I
started using it!), and there could do to be a good book on it.

I personally don't buy the benefits of yet. The whole "tweak,
run" thing that Brian advocates isn't sold on me, because that's exactly
what I do, only it's "tweak, make test"...
