Just a guess. Given that the bottleneck is parsing the received string
using C string functions or adding to the treeview, I think adding to
the treeview takes more time, we add a new item to the model, then by
adding it the tree view gets notified about the model change and it
updates itself and repaints. I just guess this takes a little more time
than a little string handling. But again, it's just a guess and maybe
the bottleneck is something completely else.

Ah, yeah. That(build error indicators) is more probable to be the cause
for the slowness. However, I don't think there is much need to limit
this, if users are bothered by this, they can simply disable the
highlighting in the prefs dialog.
