Performance during site creation is abysmally slow. This is largely because of database i/o: large numbers of tables need to be created and populated, and WordPress disables most object caching during the site creation process (wp_installing(true); see get_option()).

I'd like to do some experiments to mitigate this problem. For one thing, I'd like to ensure that wp_installing() is flipped back to false at the end of the core installation process. I don't believe there's any reason to have it turned on while we're cloning from the site template.

I've verified the wp_installing() change - it cuts the number of queries in half - and pushed it to production I'll leave this ticket open to look for other obvious improvements.

I've examined this and I'm not sure there's much more I can do at the moment.
