       PPI::XS - (Minor) XS acceleration for PPI


       PPI::XS provides XS-based acceleration of the core PPI packages. It selectively replaces a
       (small but growing) number of methods throughout PPI with identical but much faster C

       Once installed, it will be auto-detected and loaded in by PPI completely transparently.

       Because the C implementations are linked to the perl versions of the same function, it is
       preferable to upgrade PPI::XS any time you do a major upgrade of PPI itself.

       If the two fall out of sync, the integration between the two is designed to degrade
       gracefully. PPI::XS is capable of determining which functions are no longer equal, and
       will simple leave the perl version alone, deleting the C version to free up the memory.

       If the versions of the two get so far apart that they become completely incompatible,
       PPI::XS will simply silently not load at all.

       Beyond that, there isn't that much more you really need to know. :)
