Faster? Hmm, perhaps there are just a lot of printfs and so everything
seems to scroll faster, since the console driver is exactly the same.

See, this seems to be a very very bad thing. Even if I almost rewrote
that piece of code recently. It was immorally broken.

Hmm, by hacking a bit the code. Perhaps I/we should make this option
available in the configure script. But I want to wait for this, since
I want to rationalize the configure/automake thing by following recent
GNU Mach changes affecting these scripts.


It was a type of people I did not know, I found them very strange and
they did not inspire confidence at all. Later I learned that I had been
introduced to electronic engineers.
