Sorry - I meant compared to straight functions. The context (in my head) was
$object_i_can_use = My_Class::instance();
$object_i_can_use() = my_class_instance();
Where the former stores the as a static property or variable, and the
later accesses a previously created global.
I didn't actually benchmark that specific scenario, though, so I
probably shouldn't even have mentioned it :)
