I am posting my benchmark results now.  Kwarts is the fastest template
system I have tested, and is nearly as fast as mod_ruby.  It turns out
that eRuby itself is very fast also, as long as it is called from an .rbx
script and not interpreted automatically as an .rhtml file under mod_ruby.

Why this is, I don't know, but the tests seem to bear it out.

Good work!

(note: my tests don't exercise many features in these template systems;
doing actual work would probably do a lot to my numbers)
