Yay, now if they could remove Code Press, and that stupid forum permissions JS draggy piece of crap...
(can't be bothered looking up the licenses of those things)

Yeah I agree that they either should remove Code Press or switch to something better. That thing never works for me
Edit:
(that's why I disable it)

CodePress is LGPL.

If someone would recommend a better one we could integrate on the MyBB Site, we would be happy to switch to it.

I haven't really tested those, but I don't think Javascript is really meant for syntax highlighting.  This stuff takes a bit of effort from the system, and a purely interpreted scripting language (some newer browsers may be doing some JIT compilation or similar) isn't really designed for this stuff.
Also, you should cater for users on older hardware.  At a minimum, I reckon someone with an Intel Atom N270 @1.6GHz processor - it should run reasonably well with a large template.

That's why we have an option to turn it off. You're not forced to use it by any means.

Leaving everything as an option is not necessarily an optimal thing, not to mention issues of maintenance and so forth.
Having a big monolithic script has its issues - leaving useless fancy stuff like this (which breaks functionality) is probably best left to modifications.
