Exactly.  Developers (myself included!) tend to optimize way too fast/ 
early.  I'd start with the bare minimal, get that into core, spend  
some time evaluating, and improve as necessary.  Making the best  
possible case for designers is exactly what this is about, and this  
time around, we should go all the way.

I've read your blog post and am particularly interested in trying to  
test this as soon it is working as intended.  Step #1 is to run the  
scripts and to do some performance benchmark.  Have you done any  
experiments yet?  When can we expect to be able to play with this?  :-)

Thanks for taking a lead in this, Vlado!  Much appreciated.
