So I've got some vague ideas of what 1.5 will entail...

I'm still disatisfied with memory consumption and performance;
so more on that.  Maybe some more optional Inline::C, but
ease-of-installation still must be taken into account.

I started writing Documentation/technical/data_structures.txt a
some time ago and realized we could reduce, eliminate and reuse
some data structures.  That would allow us to document less
things, reduce cognitive load on hackers, AND save some RAM :>

Another place that bothers me is we build up big, per-message
memory buffers for HTML/Atom feeds.  Since most HTTP requests
are compressed anyways, I've been slowing moving towards
buffering directly to gzip, allowing our internal memory
representation to be compressed.  Though it may not help a lot
because deflate contexts take several dozen kilobytes of RAM.
Still, that allows us to avoid Plack::Middleware::Deflater and
the memory-wasting closures it imposes.  And one less
dependency in the INSTALL file, too.
