Tweaking fitSharp performance

It's convenient to use wildcards in the FitNesse path:
!path c:\mypath\*.dll
However, if there's a lot of unnecessary files loaded by this path specification, performance can be impacted. The biggest overhead that fitSharp incurs, on top of running your System Under Test, is searching assemblies looking for classes. So if you can limit the assemblies that it has to search, this can help:
!path c:\mypath\myfixtures.dll
Sometimes every little bit counts!
