Perl's autoflush() and Gearman workers

:) Before I spend lots of time profiling, analyzing whats the  
bottleneck in gearmand (perl) I'd like to spend 5 minutes compiling  
gearmand c version to see if I notice anything different speed wise.  
Than at least I have something to compare profile wise to see where  
things are going slower. I know that libevent uses epoll on Linux and  
I need to verify if Gearmand (perl) even uses that. That would help  
explain when a large pool of workers are connected causing performance  
degradation on the polling aspect of the sockets.
