Unfortunately, we can't take these statistics as canon:

  * there's no instructions on how to duplicate.

  * the SimplePie result is an estimate ("At SimplePie I have to
    do an estimate, because the feed download time was accumulated
    to the measure."

  * it is unknown whether the other feed parsers are doing the
    same sanitization that SimplePie does, again, which adds
    more time to the results.

I won't be convinced that the processing time of SimplePie is an 
accurate and overwhelming negative to it's more proper parsing support 
until I see repeatable and clean room results (no download, no 
sanitizing, etc.)
