Thanks so much for doing these Ross! These Plone 4 vs previous  
versions comparisons are going to be great for marketing. I'll put out  
a post touting our progress on Tuesday (was going to do it Friday, but  
didn't want to see it swallowed up by the holiday weekend here in the  

One thing we need to keep in mind with the PLIP comparisons is that  
many of them haven't merged in changes to CMFPlone and other packages  
since they did their initial branches so that may be one of the  
factors in their speed differences.

I'll have to check with the guys at the office, but we may be able to  
spare a VM to do this sort of thing regularly.
