barnyard2 is going to outperform most everything else just due to the 
language it is written in versus all the python/perl/ruby/whatever. 
There was a duplicate entry bug I found about six months ago, but the 
maintainers fixed it super quick and it runs pretty flawlessly. Actively 
maintained and fast, you can't ask for much more.
