  * used collective.contentgenerator's Public Site profile to populate the
 site with 4000 items
  * used ab -n 100 to benchmark the old search results
 (/search?SearchableText=Britain&b_size=2000) and the new ones
 (/@@search?SearchableText=Britain&b_size=2000) -- the large batch size
 here is because the new results don't support batching yet...in my case
 the search for 'Britain' gave about 500 results.

  * old search.pt: 6.32 requests/sec.
  * new search browser view: 1.09 requests/sec.  Ouch.

 Some other observations:
  * the results are not batched

 Given the rather large performance penalty of the new approach, you might

 doesn't rely on IContentListing.  (Caveat: I haven't done detailed
 profiling to confirm that the new content listing approach is the
