This is rubbish and only the case if you use TeXmacs in particular ways,
i.e. over a network, when compiling without optimizations,
when putting large pieces of the document in certain markup like tables,
or having a document of several hundreds of pages.

Sure, if you output a polynomial of 1000 pages, then you may have a problem,
but it is up to you not to print such output, or condense it.

Examples, timings?

Rendering is already done in that way.
