Not suprising at all. Your solution (which required you knew the
potential variable names) was all already-compiled perl code. A

No doubt it's slower. It's more robust (no need to know what's
in the string first) but it's slow.
However the 'my' in the eval case may be slowing things
down too - it's not only setting the value, it's making
