You can find more information on the speaker's site:

Type-checks make perl slower and might come handy for discipline, but using types will also offer many optimization possibilities.

So my plans for 5.16 are types.

Type-checking with use types already existed since 2002, and nobody used it. So I'll focus on optimizations.
Typed arrays, perfect hashes, typed scalars, readonly vars which are actually faster.
In core and the compiler.
