I've prepared validator 1.1 release in Mercurial (everything else except 
tagging the code), most notable changes:

I believe these changes should solve the vast majority of recently introduced 
validator performance issues and suggest this to be deployed to production 
soon unless someone finds regressions in it compared to 1.0 (I don't think 
there are any).  The code is currently running at http://qa-

One note about deployment: if using file based "compiled" template caching (I 
believe validator.w3.org does use it at the moment), the cache needs to be 
either cleared or all validator's *.tmpl files touched so that they are newer 
than the cached versions.  This is because there have been some changes that 
HTML::Template won't notice otherwise, and the new code would work incorrectly 
with the old compiled templates.  mkrelease.sh in Mercurial has been updated 
to do the touching before tarball creation so if installing from the tarballs 
created with it, this should be handled more or less automatically.
