in thread use vs. require in string eval?
While I agree that require's are probably a tad faster than uses's,
I am not sure that trying to benchmark these like this is really a valid test.
Is'nt it true that once you require(or use) a module, perl knows that you have done this,
and shorts out any further calls for that same module? Hence you can have multiple requires
peppered throughout your App, and it does not make your performace suffer,
even if the statement is hit multiple times.
