With Inline it is easier to extend Perl with C than
it is to extend Ruby with C.  The fact that you can
also extend Perl with multiple other languages (C++,
Python, more to come) is just icing on the cake.

Literally just drop the C code directly into the
script, and leave deciding when to recompile and how
to link up to Inline.
