I would very much like someone to step up as our "performance czar", and to
create a benchmarking suite to run alongside our test suite, to establish a
baseline for operations which should always be quick in Emacs.

Efficiency matters a lot to me, although at the moment it falls because
correctness and not crashing. But I'd like to improve in this area as well
over time.
