Performance and efficiency have many dimensions. Switching out a bus for a
race car might could mean very little if your map is bad.

We've put out the call for a performance czar before, but thus far no takers.
It's an area where much help is needed, and could be an interesting puzzle to
take on.

Indeed - do you have any special task in mind? Would my disclaimer be sufficient for the test cases provided maybe?
Or --maybe better-- keep that stuff out of distributed Emacs?
