The need for speed

[ #703 ]

I've done it. Algorithm::FastPermute.

It can comfortably print all the permutations of ten elements in less than a minute, on my iBook. So it's almost four times as fast as Algorithm::Permute.

Since it's based on Matt Day's code, I should get his permission before releasing it properly. I also wonder if it could be incorporated into List::Util. Time to write some email.

Update: Email to and is bouncing. Does anyone have his current email address?
