We should apologize here for the abysmal performance of chuck.
There are many places in the implementation that could be and
need to optimized, several of which are in the synthesis engine
(i.e. we need to look into the adaptive block processing that
was brought up a few times).  So far, we are still in the "make
it work / make it right" stages, and not quite to the "make it
fast" phase yet.  Hopefully we will get there soon.  Very sorry
for this!
