Believe it or not, it's a bottleneck.
In order to preserve whitespace, you have to create a bunch of extra
Node and str objects, which consume a not-inconsiderable set of
resources for, let's say, a directory full of reasonably sized Woven
This cost is exacerbated by the fact that woven copies and inspects the
entire tree of DOM objects on every page render.
Last I profiled this was many months ago, however; I was seeing serious
performance problems with Woven which have since been optimized in
other ways. I'd be interested in hearing your results if you try it
