There was, is and will be pros and cons no matter how we do it.

I now changed the performance-threatening "DefaultInternalEncoding" to 
be disabled by default. That should be a fair compromise. For non-UTF-16 
formats or ASCII-only use, this is practically the same as -enc:raw.

Please try that same test on your slow gear, using a commented-out 
DefaultInternalEncoding instead of supplying -enc:raw. I think/hope it 
will give you the same performance.
