I see, so can your point out which C code can be changed, which not. Then I have
a clear view and guide. Otherwise, some developer have to guess whether this
will disobey your principles.

Sorry, I indeed have not read git log too much. I will read them now.

I git log list out your commits, found you submitted lot of commits. Almost half
of commits are modifying C source code.

I misunderstand you, I thought you're some guy who just talking and don't do
work. This is my fault and I admit it.

Anyway, I still think should port C code to Elisp code as much as possible. Even
it's small bettern than nothing.
