I agree it is Not The Problem. But increased "speed" is a "killer" hook 
to persuade them to agree an upgrade. I have to upgrade DBI and 
DBD::ODBC because I need newer facilities in there to do some other 
stuff. I am looking to upgrade the perl at the same time ('cos I am a 
"professional" and like to anticipate) and casting around for suitable 
justifications. It isn't exactly a lot of extra work.
