Mysteriously slow? Try a release build

Hello, I don’t really have much to say, but i had noticed that running my program tectonic seemed to be really slow,

And I was supposing that perhaps I wasn’t setting up the cache properly or something. where the tectonic from cargo install took about 20 seconds, my usage of the API was taking about 90-120 seconds.

after looking through the sources for tectonic binary, it finally dawned on me that the difference was entirely due to debug vs release mode.

Just wanted to mention it here, in case others might run into it

I think content like this would be great in a Tips and Tricks or Recipes section of the new mdbook documentation.
