Actually I've been exploring this recently, and the opposite is the case. 
The CPerl from Ilya is quite old.  The emacs variant has had quite a few
little bug-fixes over the last three years.  This seems the first case where
Ilya's is better.  As for $opt_s, $opt{s}, %opt = ( s => ..., $p::s and all
such single occurences of 's' they're a nightmare in both variants.
