Of course you did profile the simple clear solution first before creating a more complex and harder to maintain solution - didn't you ? :-)

Here's the start of a thread on the Portland Perl Monger's list where I consider adding C code to Sort::External, then opt for a simpler solution after benchmarking.

    It's just one of my pet hates when people think that a comment over an ugly and complicated piece of code is better than making the code simpler to understand - often using the excuse of efficiency with no real backup.
