I'd say that whoever feels that forrest is talking more time than it 
needed it has two choices:

  - get dirty with it and make it faster

  - use something else

The third choice:

  - complaining about it without doing anything

is useless.

Can Forrest be faster than it is today? sure. I think that with tweaking 
the sitemap and the component pools we can gain a lot of speed. Also I'm 
not sure how 'cache friendly' the Cocoon CLI is (that is another source 
of major speed gain).

Con Forrest be faster than Anakia? hardly. Anakia doesn't even parse the 
XML. It's a text generation system. It's designed for command line. It's 
designed for unstructured data. It's designed for small sites. It's 
designed with no idea of SoC.

In short, they are two different things that happen to have partial 
functionality overlap.

Andy, if you like Anakia more because it fits your needs, use that!

And then complain to them about the fact that it doesn't this or that, 
even if it *doesn't* very quickly :-P
