Comment (by ryan):

 I would like to make some improvements in 2.4, but there are no guarantees
 it will happen given everything else that is scheduled for 2.4.  Here are
 my thoughts on how to address the page rewrite rules.

 We currently have 9 rewrite rules per page.  This, obviously, sucks.
 The rules are there to avoid collisions for those who use category or tag
 bases of "/" or those using %category%, %tag%, or %postname% at the
 beginning of their permalink structure.  Most people don't do this,
 making all of those page rules a huge waste.  For those who don't use
 any of the above, let's add a catch-all set of page rules at the end
 of the rewrite rule list.  Those who do use the above will get the old
 behavior.  Losing hundreds of rewrite rules (thousands for some
 people) and the need to update the rewrite rules every time a page is
 changed would greatly improve performance.
