Two key areas of focus are (compared to say Pegged):

I didn't profile, but apart from the time-complexity that is inherent to straight forward recursive descent parsers like Pegged (improved by memoization), my impression is that Pegged's main performance problem is due to a very high constant: it is concatenating strings, all the time. A LOT of strings, and a LOT of concatenations. Almost all of them are discarded, of course. Finding a way to do the same without string concatenation would have a big impact.
