Well, if the blocks would be processed seperately, that would be quite
some gain. I suppose that for some pages the blocks take up more
processing time than the main page.

The ideal place for updating the history table would be in hook_exit(),
but that would cause node.module to be loaded for cached pages.

Alternatively, we could move the call to hook_footer into
drupal_page_footer(). It does not seem to be used anywhere (added: the
copyright module uses it). BTW, I'd like to have a hook_header back to
avoid emitting extra CSS and JS in the _menu hook. I think I can rally
support for this. :)
