Yeah, and no wonder, most probably benchmarked against plain textfile I/O
with its default 128 byte buffer.

One can actually spice FPC/Delphi text I/O up quite nicely with settextbuf
to 8k (the last time I tested, in P4 3 GHz times, higher values didn't
really matter anymore)

The compiler however already has its own 64k buffering system.
