Algorithms for these structures have changed over the years.
Are both perls the same version? Is either or both of them compiled
with processor-specific options? I will assume you're measuring
actual CPU seconds.
Sometimes we can choose the path we follow.
Sometimes our choices are made for us.
And sometimes we have no choice at all.
