32K is no longer a limitation. Some list members released 32-bit patches a
while ago. I don't know that this body of work is complete, but as far as I
know, it does work well enough.

Ehhhhh..... well, that may be a hard generalization to prove. Like I said in
another post, PERL isn't really an intrinsically good match for a uCsimm,
but there is a company out there that uses a 90MHz ColdFire processor with
uClinux as the OS (they make a small router); PERL might be an excellent
tool for something like that.
