I performed a very non-scientific test on the map of Germany which I
regularly compile.

Using SVN 1022 without the patch, compiling the  35 tiles took 2 hours
and 6 minutes.

With the patch installed, the compile time was 1 hour 53 minutes.

I would say that the difference is statistically insignificant, ;-)
although I was surprised that the compilation with the patch was about
13 minutes faster, but this could be due to other processes consuming
system resources. (As I said, my test was highly unscientific.)

I'll try to test again with v3 of this patch, but it seems that
performance is not an issue, apparently.
