it'd be great if gnome-shell could give feedback to the clutter team as
to where the performance issues of the shell are blocking on clutter
itself. in the coming weeks, pre and post 1.0.0, the clutter team will
work on stabilization and performance improvements. we've been profiling
and instrumenting most of the stack but obviously real world use cases
are the best platform for finding out eventual bottlenecks.

this is currently being worked on by the fine people at Igalia:

a talk on the subject has been proposed (and accepted) for this year's
GUADEC. we're willing to host that project on to
allow easier integration with core and the rest of clutter's integration
