FOTD: REFLECTIONCLASS()->NEWINSTANCEARGS($ARGS) is "slow"

Christan Stocker has posted a finding of the day that he ran across and wanted to share to help out other developers out there:

The difference comes in at about half the time for both side of the examples - with the switch and via reflection.
