I haven't compared Altitude against any other framework, but I have
done some comparisons of different implementations within Altitude.
One example is XTChunkedWriteStream, which implements an optimized
version of the chunked transfer encoding. When streaming a large JSON
payload it was (IIRC) 5x or 10x better than the naive implementation I
threw together.

It might be interesting to create a Seaside app and an Altitude app
the render the same test page and time them.
