Performance and interactivity suck without being able to use FD
passing (especially tab completions).  And having to maintain
and separate code paths is a huge time sink...

Inline::C is packaged by every relevant distro (unlike
Socket::Msghdr), and I figure anybody who uses lei at this stage
will have a C compiler...

It would let us use io-uring and maybe some other things
more easily, too (and I miss hacking in C).

Yeah, I'd figure the same, so my uninformed guess/opinion is that the
separate code paths aren't worth the trouble.
