This is a hoot! I semi-seriously proposed that we do this at Sun back in the SunOS 4.x days.

Got shot down, of course, as it should have been back then, the CPUs were just not fast enough. Even today, C beats perl pretty handily.

Even so, I think this is pretty cute. Anyone know why it was done? Just because? Or was there a reason.
