IMO, the benchmark needs to be changed to factor out GC, because the
time a GC takes depends on the number and structure of objects you
have in your session, and that has nothing to do with the issue at
hand.

So a better benchmark is this:

  (let ((gc-cons-threshold most-positive-fixnum))
    (benchmark-run 1
      (dotimes (i 10000)
        (parse-time-string "Fri, 13 Feb 2015 14:40:02 +0000"))))

FWIW, this takes 1.2 sec in a fresh "emacs -Q", and 2.0 sec in a
full-blown session running for 5 days.  That's clearly different from
the data presented by Peter (but I don't use Gnus).
