Great! Anything to improve the performance of scsh is a win IMO.
Someone sent me mail today volunteering to to the regexp precompilation code,
too, so there's hope for regexps.

Which will be out when again?
Depends on when bdc gets the static linker stuff integrated. I told him
yesterday on the phone he'd better be done by the end of April, or we'd
have to get out the genital cuff, again.
(I'm planning on spending lots of
time over the summer porting scsh to mzscheme, so it would be
great if the release were in early May or so..)
Teriffic! I have reason to believe Kelsey's about to kick out a new S48
release (0.41; the last public one was 0.36, on which scsh is built). So
we'll try to gear up for the big convulsion of shifting over to the new
release when it happens. (This will mean, for example, completely rewriting
the I/O system, hopefully with improved performance.) Besides an improved I/O
system, 0.41 has a pretty carefully thought-out thread system, so we might
even be able to multithread the Unix stuff.
