Uhmm, that's not actually always true. I have done
some benchmarks in the past and this is what I think
I have noticed:
It is true if your the number of pages in your
pagelist set before filtering on categories is a
large percentage of the number of page's on your site.
On the other hand, if you have say, a small group,
with only about 10 pages in it, and you have specified
group=smallgroup in your pagelist command, and your
site has about 1000 files in it, it will actually be
slower with the current indexing system. The reason I
suppose is because searching the index file (of 1000
entries) for the links of your 10 pages can actually
take longer than simply searching the 10 files in
-Martin (who was never quite happy with the current
indexing system.) :(
