I've noticed that 0.9.0 is a major memory pig (on my under-endowed FreeBSD
machine, at least) which sucks up nearly all my available swap space (though
that may be due in part to the much larger classes.zip file.)

If this is the case on your machine, the slowness could simply be due to
severe thrashing...
