Patch for fixing most out of memory errors when importing

It's fairly common to run out of memory when importing. It seems a main reason for this is that the rewrite rules are flushed every time a post is created. On one of my blogs, this uses up over 1Mb of memory that you don't get back (it has 200 static pages and the /%post-name%/ permalink structure).

It seems to me that there's an easy fix for each of the importers. The fix should also save on processing time.

  1. Firstly, create a function that duplicates the _save_post_hook function and remove the rewrite commands from it.
  1. Then remove_action('save_post', '_save_post_hook', 5, 2) and add_action('save_post', 'custom_function', 5, 2).
  1. Perform the import.
  1. Reverse the remove/add actions.
  1. Flush the rewrite rules.

Perhaps a more elegant solution would be to provide a hook or variable that could be passed to _save_post_hook that would prevent the rewrite rules flushing. That way it saves having duplicate code in two functions.

(In [9101]) Don't flush rules for every post imported. see #7193

(In [9101]) Don't flush rules for every post imported. see #7193

Do the rewrite rules still need flushing for every page addition? Unless Verbose rules are enabled (Which could be checked in that codeblock too) the rules don't change with a new page AFAIK?

Yeah, we should check for verbose.
