I think we have to make compile-time performance a priority -- and it
may influence the extensibility API. If we bill this as Lambda-2 and it
causes noticeable compile lag over Lambda-1, folks will be rightly
Frankly, I wish I had the template profiler before I settled on Proto's
extensibility API because I might have done things differently.
