Interesting read, thanks.

Just some braindump.  How about async calls and future.

sub f is async returns future {
    # your favorite expensive operations here
    return $something;

my $x = f();
# some more expensive operations here
# this part executes concurrently
# with f() ...

# ... until the future is read for
# the first time; this will block until
# the value is available
