The pp -d switch is great because it removes the need to compile the perl interpreter into every executable. How about extending this to also omit the parl code? i.e. compile parldyn as a DLL and put a loader into a minimal .exe stub so that multiple .exes can rely on the same parldyn.dll. This would vastly reduce the size of the .exe files produced by pp.
