The story there is I thought most of the page overhead was in the
regular expressions of autop, etc so I thought that just reading the
post text directly out of the DB would be faster, if less flexible.
The change was so small it was unmeasurable. It's a good example of why
when tweaking performance it's critical to know where the actual
bottlenecks are before getting your hands dirty. Premature optimization
is the root of all evil.
