Performance concerns

I love your library and I think it is very powerful and robust, however it seems to have some performance issues.

I've conducted some (admittedly quick and sloppy) tests between System.Xml.Serialization and YAXLib, and in my test cases, YAXLib takes 40-50 times longer to run through the same amount of [de]serializations.

In many cases, this is not an issue. However, for my purposes, this massive loss of speed means that I am completely unable to use YAXLib. Perhaps YAXLib just isn't the solution for my project, but I was wondering if you have any plans for possibly improving the performance? It's understandable if you don't. No need to do possibly weeks/months of work for a single user with a niche requirement :)

Thank you for your work on this, I'll definitely keep it in mind for any future projects.

Thanks for this. I'm glad you found some features in YAXLib helpful. I'd love to fix the performance issues, my only problem is I've got not much free time.

Anyway, could you please send me your performance test classes?
