I believe in you.  "You are stronger than you feel, braver than you
know, wiser beyond your years.  Where-ever you go, there's something
that you must always remember, I'll always be with you."

Have you heard about zig yet?  It's a language that is faster than C!
Now it depends on LLVM, and we would rather have it depend on GCC.  But
maybe you could write a zig alternative that is powered by GCC?

That'll give you some tips...Most serious GNU maintainers tend to use
Gnus.  I use Gnus, because I want to be just like Samuel :)  And Ludo
:).  And John Wigley!  John Wigley has his Gnus set up, so that, he can
say, "I do not want to hear from this email thread, unless my name is
specifically mentioned again."

I personally am still figuring out how to get searching in Gnus
working.  :)
