Performance enhancements

As an independent web developer, I am sometimes asked by big name companies to provide an independent performance assessment of their websites and one of the most common things I notice is the lack of CDN usage.
A Content Delivery Network can be a big boost to website performance when it has visitors from different countries and since Ionize excels at providing multi-lingual content it seems only natural that Ionize should provide CDN support.

Of course, we can do this right now in Ionize by adding a line of code into our existing header views/pages but I think it would be a nice feature if we had an admin feature or possibly a module to manage things like a Google CDN 'key' and the links to the content we want to include in our header such as MooTools/jQuery libraries.
It would be kind of cool to be able to manage CDN's and maybe even have ION tags to automatically insert our code like

<ion:cdn source="1" />

to save us writing hard coded stuff like

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/jsapi?key=ABQIAAAAXXXXX"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.4/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

Re: Performance enhancements

That's where the next feature we have planned which is "Code snippets" will apply perfectly. To be released near 1.0 version, in some months.
