in reply to relative speed of 5.8.0

After reading the above posts, I began playing around with this myself. The only thing new I discovered was this:
use open IO => ":raw";
Adding the above made it abysmally slow!
Running it again under 'strace' made it clear why, the reads are done one byte at the time!
Anyone know a good reason why this would be so?
