I believe there is some confusion here.
Unless Ojan tests provide a different picture of the problem, here is where I
think we stand:
1. we no performance impact for the simple text path
2. we have very small impact on the complex text path (but I don't have the
exact numbers)
3. where things have gotten worse is where we started using the complex path
for cases where we used to use the simple one.

I will address number 3 shortly.
