You have it backwards. The C data structures in 5.10 and greater are more light weight. Look elsewhere for the speed differences you have seen.

    Yeah shouldn't have pointed out data structures being the cause when really I have no clue. I'm not really interested in digging up why one is faster than the other.

    I am interested in any educated guesses or ideas others may have. Any opinion/evidence on why 5.6 was so much faster in that example?
