I don´t have done any performance tests so far.

I ´ve released a package on pypi but i called it nva.stormcontainer.
As i don´t have commit access for svn.zope.org i released it under the 
nva namespace instead of a z3c namespace.

So it should be possible to include it in your setup.py run buildout and
you should have it...
