For release, maybe disble it, and work on a solution for 1.6?
A note about the raster format - I wonder if it only affects rasters without overviews. For the vrts in Greg's test, though the files referenced in the vrts are JP2s, does a vrt inherit the overviews? I did a test with a single 1 GiB JP2 and it generates the legend icon nearly instantaneously. A 1.3 GiB tiff without overviews takes a long time, yet the same with overviews is fast. A 200MiB tiff without overviews has a noticable delay, but it's not horrible.
Though, Greg's test vrts are quite small, just 14MiB across 4 vrts. Maybe there's something else with a vrt that slows down the legend generation? Zooming and panning are not affected.
