realizing beta variates in Mathematica

Dear MathGroupers

Can any of you suggest a fast way to simulate beta random variables in Mma??

The version that comes with Mma has full machine precision (but of course!)
but it is also very slow.......

On the early phase of a project, I would be willing to sacrifice some of
the decimal digits of precision for more speed...

Any ideas??
