I had a play with them in the initial state, and it did show a marked
improvement in performance, however, there were some functional issues
that Joe has now resolved and I haven't re-run my perf tests on it due
to lack of time.

My approaches were to totally replace the templating library with
allegedly faster alternatives, with an adapter pattern. This resulted
in slower geeklog. I then tried re-factoring chunks of geeklog (where
looping was used) with the faster alternatives (and an adapter
pattern) and got an improvement, but not a huge one.

Joe's approach is to improve the performance of PHPLIb by compiling
it's templates and caching them, it does speed things up
