Are any of the python filter users on this list? I want to make some
changes there but think it good to ask first. Specifically, I can do
away with a bucketload of malloc and copy slowness by using buffer
objects instead of strings. Most string and re methods treat these
objects as equivalent, but there are a few cases where you would need
to coerce using buffer() or str().
The three ways I could go on this are:
1 leave the slow copies in place.
2 make the change and document how to work with buffer objects.
3 add and document the buffer stuff but keep string objects in there
as an option.
Any opinions? I'm leaning toward #2, since this stuff isn't in any
"official" INN versions as yet.
