Just a quick note on this: I did callgrind this, but with trivial document only
having some enumerations. It might very well be that there are lots of
different performance issues in the layouts for different sample documents.

In the end, specfically for mail merge, the goal IMHO has to be to kill the
relayout after each insert, to allow the merged document to be rendered _once_
at the end of the merge. 

Of course, speeding up the layout itself is nice too as it likely also helps
load/save speed in general. But I dont think it would be the right approach to
fix mail merge for good.
