    FWIW, from Date/Manip.pod:
    The downside is that Date::Manip is slow, especially when compared to several of the other Date/Time modules which are written in C. Although I am working on making Date::Manip faster, it will never be as fast as these modules. And before anyone asks, Date::Manip will never be translated to C (at least by me). I write C because I have to. I write perl because I like to. Date::Manip is something I do because it interests me, not something I'm paid for. Yes, Date::Manip is VERY SLOW. Don't use it unless you want to be slow, or need something only Date::Manip provides.
