FWIW: $PREFERRED_PARSER should be XML::LibXML::SAX; just "XML::LibXML" falls down hard. And it did speed it
up (0.4 secs vs. >1 sec). But XML::Simple's docs need a bit more clarity on the subject,
cuz I tore out significant chunks of hair trying to find the secret sauce.
(Not to mention the agony of setting up LibXML on Windows and fussing w/ environment variables so XML::LibXML could find it..).
