Usually, this is fine because pages like the index are very small. But
apparently on large files (with no dates to process!) this can take
quite a while. For instance, i18n/ru.po in the Mercurial repo (25k
lines) takes 9s to fully load, according to Firebug.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
