The two versions are nearly identical (at least for CMF 1.4.7 v Plone 2.1);
Plone has extra checks to handle FactoryTool and to handle broken/missing
action providers. I am a bit surprised that this simple check would take 70%
of the time as it's only evaluated for actions that pass the condition and
permission checks, which would seem to be more expensive. I'd expect the
evaluation of the conditions to be much more expensive, but if there are many
actions available, looping through a portion of them for each available
action could be quite expensive. I'm sure it all depends on the specific use
case. Whatever the case, this check is almost certainly unnecessary, whereas
the condition checks are unavoidable and difficult to optimize.
