That's being very polite ;-)

Largefile support is an option when you build perl from source, and
there are a few others which might be useful as long as you are going to
roll your own. Sorry, I won't make suggestions, the list isn't that long
and you should take a minute and scan it to see what sets off your "gee
that would be handy" detector.
