i dunno. c2 is pretty fast in and of itself.

content aggregation would be very helpful before going beta. in my mind,
beta code is supposed to be largely stable in two ways - it shouldn't
crash all the time for inexplicable reasons, and the API and configuration
files' formats shouldn't be changing wildly. if we can add content
aggregation to the sitemap, i think we'll be at a point at which we could
get a beta release out there for people to play with. and really, how hard
can content aggregation really be compared with the very difficult
problems already solved? i'd try to do it myself, but i'm swamped helping
develop an in-house CMP using EJB's.
