Easily. There are multiple copies of the data made, lots of memory
being moved around, type conversions, etc. This is not a low-overhead
There's an item on the Wishlist to alleviate some of this, and some
ideas at how to implement it. All that's wanted is someone interested
enough to do it in a clean way that doesn't break the ABI. Or, patience
to wait until 3.x.
