I would prefer to avoid addition swirl on this thread by seeing an
actual test case testing both approaches. This would give something
concrete to talk about, and help isolate issues. If a simple test case
shows roughly equivalent performance, but that does not match when
extending a particular widget, that would help isolate what piece of
code has any potential performance issues.

And maybe start a new thread with a more specific subject.
