Could you clarify more of what you mean here?  I've seen lots of extremely inefficient scripts (and written quite a few myself!) and it's very possible you're doing something that isn't generally a good idea for operational use.

Gilbert Clark is doing some profiling work but I'm not sure if that's going to address your needs.  I'll let him comment on his work if he's reading this thread.
