[really cool, megrok.chameleon!]

Thanks for doing this work Uli! I really like all the activity 
surrounding alternative template languages in Grok now. For a while I 
thought the work at the Neanderthal sprint to support other template 
languages was not really going to be used by anyone, as it was very 
quiet surrounding the topic, but it looks like things are changing.

It could be that non-template handling time is dominating in your test 

Anyway, I'd like to see lots more people doing lots more profiling with 
Grok so we can track down issues like this and gain a better 
understanding for where time is going now, and where we should spend 
efforts to make things faster.
