ZOMG SO SLOW

This program is very close to the one I use to prune old versions of my libraries from CPAN. It is incredibly slow after it gets going.

Seriously. Try it.

NYTProf suggests that it's HTML::Form's selected getting called about nine billion times or something. Surely this is slowing down other people doing other stuff, right?

Wanna make it faster? Sure you do.

I included the latest HTML-Form so you can edit it right there and try over and over — and run the tests as you change it to make sure it still works as it should.
