Agreed, and I'm all for everyone trying things out. As was pointed out
earlier: nobody needs consensus to commit code to their whiteboard.

I don't think you can assume that. Anecdotally I've heard of Spark apps
that ended up slower than their Halo predecessors. Although personally I
haven't done much Spark development, so I can't speak to that, but I don't
think you can say Spark is faster than Halo as a blanket statement.

Well, that was the difference between AS2 and AS3 and
a completely rewritten virtual machine.

My only point was that for all these decisions performance considerations
have to be one of the top things we always think about. It may be that a
composition-heavy UI component can actually perform a hell of a lot faster
than the current UIComponent, because you can remove a lot of the baggage
that only gets used infrequently. I just wanted to point out that there are
performance implications to a lot of these decisions, and if we don't take
them seriously we're going to end up with something just as slow as we've
already had.
