   One thing we noticed is that performance for CMS content editing
between administrators and non-administrators was almost twice as fast
- for example, bringing up a new page in the editor interface may take
3 seconds for an admin, but 6 seconds for a conventional editor.
Buried in the code there is a check for if a user has admin privs, and
if so, it bypasses all the permissions checks - for non-admins the
permissions checks take relatively huge amounts of time.

   The difference is much smaller for small sites - our site has over
a thousand pages. We haven't looked into how to tweak the code for
non-admins - it seemed a lost cause since 3.0 was coming out.
