Oops, sorry! (For the record, patch by Una Sabovic)

> The key is to mass-remove nodes as much as possible since the cost of updating selection manifests only at a node removal.

Abstractly, the two natural solutions are:
1. Make updating selection fast
2. Avoid updating selection (e.g., batch node removals)

Looking at the solution in r115460 (by Enrica Casucci ;-) for
Bug 83983 - REGRESSION(r96257): Deleting a large amount of text is very slow

...looks like it just speeds up the computation, without needing to make major code changes (i.e., #1). Perhaps we can do something similar here.

In terms of numbers, I'm guessing we're hitting an O(n^2) algorithm here, presumably doing something O(n) to update the selection for each of the n child nodes. If we can make updating the selection O(1) without much trouble, this would solve it.
