Just a thought, had someone tested the speed of the
5.1 version againt 5.0.2 ?

Yes.  In general it seems slightly slower when moving code
from 5.0 to 5.1, but some new 5.1 features (some better-
scaling table functions and the great select()) let you
claim back that performance and more if you use them
wisely (one of my apps ran about 25% faster in 5.1 after
I switched to the new select() where appropriate).

On top of that it's generally smoother (which isn't the
same as faster) for the apps where it matters because of
the new GC -- less severe GC stoppages.
