Also, the current implementation of Special Items List is piping once 
through a python script (grep grep) then again through a php script 
(simple line by line loop) and finally getting passed to WebKit.  
Python seems faster to me than [binary] PHP so.... eventually I plan to 
cut out the PHP script altogether and make everything happen in Python 
which will save some time.  Also, it might be worthwhile to cache 
output but I won't try that until after beta 6.
