Well we need to determine what makes lightpress so much faster.  Is it 
the queries, the templates, the cache?  Is it bypassing expensive 
filters such as texturize and autop?  It's actually quite a bit of extra 
code, so what is speeding it up?  A little thing I see in lightpress 
that I would like for WP is plugin contexts.

Maybe someone using lightpress could dump their queries and query times 
for comparison.
