Cuke parsed all the features (well the ones you tell it to) in its 
previous incarnations. The major difference is the new Abstract syntax 
tree structure where we represent a more complex object structure than 
before (but not massively I think). And hence we have more complex tree 
traversal but again I don't see it being huge.

It would be interesting to see some performance comparisons.
