Using partials - performance impact

Good questions. While my test isnt the most detailed and doesnt have
10 different partials (only 2) It does demonstrate a "slight" speed
increase for straight rhtml.
I tested straight rhtml, partial with a collection and partial with
local. The html for th collection is a little different...too lazy to
fix.
Feel free to take the app and modify it to make the test more
detailed. You can download the app here:

Uses sqlite3 and railsbench.

I tested using railsbench perf_run 200 -bm=main_controller

the results:
