Hello, Andreas.

Can you quantify this alleged general slowness?

No, just experienced. With several hundred abbrevs in a mode, feels like taking minutes when M-x edit-abbrevs is called: http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=14518

  It could well be (and I
suspect it is) that the rewriting of certain parts of Emacs in Lisp have
had a negligible, unmeasureable impact on Emacs's speed.

Can you be more specific, and identify some of these C -> Lisp changes
which you suspect have slowed Emacs?

NEWS.23: "* Changes in Specialized Modes and Packages in Emacs 23.1

** Abbrev has been rewritten in Elisp and extended with more flexibility."
