Ugh, didn't know this,

I don't know if/when I'll have time, but I'll surely want to work on this.

We could also define a test site that gets generated every night and 
shows us if/how performance is affected. I can use my server here to do 
it since at night it doesn't do anything else, all I need is a test 
site. What about taking our site now, freezing it, and checking it in a 
test dir, so it remains as the base of the tests? Or IYHO is there a 
better real-life test site we could use?

Of course, this would not make it run faster, but spot if changes have 
increased-decreased real-life performance.

There was something else but I forgot (honest! ;-)
I think that the above are more than sufficient for now.
