PageStream has done it for years, and does it quickly, even on old, slow machines. It's a great feature to have, if it can be done right. I suspect that much of the time taken to do your trick involves that fact that there are actually many, many sub-paths involved, rather than just a few of them. It can be a particularly useful effect for headlines.
Certainly, the effect isn't new, I used it with CorelDraw many years 
ago. I just wanted to show how to do it in Scribus ;-)
