is happy to return $creator and $createdate but it has to get that information from the version control system.
It would be very handy to have this info stored in the Meta Data (along with most recent author/mod date).
In large webs, asking for creator/date slows things down. Asking for "find me all of the pages I created" is slower yet.
A quick save at creation time (new pages) or edit time (pages that don;t have this data yet) would save a lot at SEARCH

This is a case where the meta-data would be being used to compensate for the deficiencies in the store. My preferred approach is to fix the store, not the meta data. Ultimately I'd like to remove the TOPICINFO completely, not increase the number of fields.
However, having said that, what you suggest is certainly an option to improve performance. Please raise it as a FeatureRequest
in Development web - it's not ready to be a task yet.

Agreed that fixing the store is the better long term approach. But for short term, performance matters.

Not sure what feedback you're waiting for. I filed the feature request. I guess I change the state now? Difficult to do via a comment field.
