Following the way of using exceptions you suggested earlier, it surely
doesn't matter: under 'normal' conditions an exception isn't going to
get thrown, so its speed is irrelevant.
I think there are much more important factors in picking an appropriate
Perl exception mechanism (I'm a Exception::Class fan too), and a speed
comparison may distract people from considering those.
