I would suggest freezing the Red Hat UTF8 speedup
patch. I studied it with attention and it addresses a
real performance problem, but I think it needs some
restructuring to avoid code dups, and generalize some
functionality in appropriate functions to be more
maintenable in the future.

Could you wait just some days?
I was occupied trying to find a decent job, but I have
some changes to the existing Red Hat patches that I
would like to submit for review.
