Er, your replies don't exactly radiate an aura of confidence about
syntax-ppss.  ;-(

I think you (Stefan) 're saying that the function isn't 100% defined for
a narrowed buffer.  Will calling s-ppss on a narrowed buffer corrupt the
cache at all, for example?

As a matter of interest, are there any benchmark figures for s-ppss?
Like, how many characters do you have to scan more than, before s-ppss
(an interpreted lisp function) starts being faster than
(parse-partial-sexp 1 (point)) (a fast function written in C)?
