performance problems *are* bugs.  the server *is* destablised right now,
it chews lots of memory, it's slow, it generates crap small packets on the
wire, there's no guarantee that it'll even match 1.3 performance.  (and
that's pretty pathetic considering how poor 1.3's performance is.)

it really irks me to see optimisation relegated to the final days in the
hopes that nothing was screwed up so seriously that a performance wiz
can't figure out some way around it without changing the API.
