Notes? I'm not being tested on this, am I :P
The work in progress is just a quick and dirty implementation of Jim
Blandy's multi-byte API, and modifying a few core functions to use this.
Earlier discussions showed that the idea of the API (caching your
current position within the string) isn't very feasible, since you can't
be sure when you'll need to recalculate the position within the string
(without building the cache and a mutex into the string). As a compiler
optimization, you may be able to prove that in certain sections of code
a string won't be resized, in which case the API could still be useful -
but we're still a ways off from compiler optimizations. So unless
someone really has a use for it, I won't publish my half-baked code.
I have some ideas about how to move forward with multi-byte string
support, but nothing that hasn't been discussed before... too much, I
think, so until I have some new code I'll keep quiet on the topic.
