Summary: MediaWiki template syntax is ugly, clumsy inefficient
and widely abused
I know this isn't really anything directly actionable by a developer, but I
feel the need for it to be represented here on Bugzilla regardlesss.
Things like this, especially:
which seem to take as much time to process on an eight-core top of the range
server machine as a sane implementation of the same logic would take on an
early 80s home computer, make me feel physically ill. I can't help but think if
something isn't done soon the programming gods will kill the first-born of
everyone involved with the project or something.
