wounded in the line of duty
I have not looked at Drupal for a while now. Even worse, I stopped using it just after 4.x.
Looking at the code from that time I then already decided it's not the best beast to maintain. Looking at it as both a system administrator and as a developer I made some changes to it resulting in a usage of only about 1/3 of the resources it used.
I did ask some of the developers on IRC why the translation tool was so bloated. I took a complete string and used that to take the translated text, even when it was in the same language. I do hope they altered that now? Reducing this by a few adjustments gave it much more speed. When mentioned on IRC they stated they would not change it just because it worked for them.
