If you've got a few thousand module files in @INC the survey() done by Pod::Simple::Search is very slow (it opens and reads every one of them, or some such). I think PodViewer load_doc() should instead just use the individual find() of that searcher. Or perhaps of Pod::Find, I don't know which is better. Maybe the filenames for each pod visited by load_doc() could be cached, if it's suspected there might be some visiting back and forward among a set of related modules. But I wouldn't think that was necessary either as long as there isn't a huge number of directories in @INC.
