It's a pretty decent speed.
I have wrote a script to analyze squid\apache logs before and it's more
complicated then just match a line to a string.
grep in general is faster for exact matches in most cases I have seen
yet and it's amazing.
The same lookup on any other scripting lang will take *3-4 or more.
