Yes, good find!  It went from 33 seconds to 11 seconds here.  Still much
room for improvement but that is a huge increase.

One thing I find interesting is that the system time is substantially
higher than the user time (user time 4 secs; system time 7 secs).
System time shouldn't be that high, should it?  Are some weird file
operations going on while reading the svg file?
