Speed Improvement

It seems that the method of adding guides is based on the whole document. I'm not able to use guides for large files and must turn it off.

The speed of could be made independent of file size by only adding guides in the current view and assuming that those outside the view extend indefinitely. This would look just fine in 99% of the cases since tabs almost always for each guide. In fact a prescan or threaded scan could be used to determine the guide list if one wanted.

Would it be possible implement such a feature? I really like guides in that I can make them almost transparent but still have some idea where the tabs are but it's simply too slow for large files. (If I knew more about extensions I would try to do it myself)
