Hello world,

recently I did some performance analysis of Drupal and compared it to  


Unfortunately, Drupal is quite slow when it comes to generating non- 
cached pages.  It would be great if we could focus some more on the  
performance of non-cached pages.  Why?  Because in practice, it is  
often a _lot_ more important than the performance of cached pages.

I know there are some patches in the queue, and I know we talked  
about this a lot in the past.  I'll review, test and benchmark some  
of these patches ASAP.  There are also a number of ideas that haven't  
been implemented/tested yet.

I hope that you will do the same, and that you continue to think (out  
of the box) with regard to Drupal's performance.
