Debian / Raspbian High CPU NTFS

Okay, so this is a major limitation I've encountered with the Raspberry PI. Using a USB hdd with an NTFS partition is going to see a lot of high CPU usage. It seems to be the mount drivers. The only thing I've found to alleviate this completely is to make an EXT4 partition on the USB drive and WOW DID IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
